The Friends of the Brill Library invite you to an evening with Louis Rose, author of Psychology, Art, and Antifascism: Ernst Kris, E. H. Gombrich, and the Politics of Caricature (Yale University Press, October 2016), as he presents a vivid portrait of two remarkable twentieth-century thinkers and their landmark collaboration on the use and abuse of caricature and propaganda in the modern world.

“In this book, Louis Rose traces the path of two great Viennese intellectuals, Ernst Kris and E.H. Gombrich-one a psychoanalyst who emigrated to New York and the other an art historian exiled in London-who together elaborated how caricature emerged as an art form since the seventeenth century, until, by the twentieth, it could be used as an arm of propaganda in the struggle against fascism. A masterful and erudite study.”

Élisabeth Roudinesco, Université Paris Diderot

Copies of the book will be made available for purchase at the event.

Louis Rose is Professor of Modern European History at Otterbein University, Executive Director of the Sigmund Freud Archives, and Editor of the interdisciplinary psychoanalytic journal American Imago.

He is the author of The Survival of Images: Art Historians, Psychoanalysts, and the Ancients (Wayne State, 2001) and most recently Psychology, Art, and Antifascism: Ernst Kris, E. H. Gombrich, and the Politics of Caricature (Yale, 2016). He received his B.A. from Clark University and his Ph.D. in History from Princeton University.
