A Thomas Nast – Gallery (His career in 38 images)
Thomas Nast (1840-1902) started his career as a “special artist” at the age of fifteen. His pictorial journalism marked the peak of graphic art as far as its influence and popularity in the 19th century is concerned. No artist was ever more successful in regard to the intensity, scope and lastingness of his political impact than this North American draughtsman.
