About this title


This title is a retrospective of the erotic art of Tomi Ungerer, an artist better known for his work on children's books.

About the Author:

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Born in Strasbourg in 1931, and raised in Nazi-run Alsace, Tomi Ungerer was presciently described by his headmaster as a “wilfully perverse and subversive individualist” before making his way to New York in the mid 1950s. His first children’s book, a story of a small family of pigs titled The Mellops Go Flying, is published by Harper & Row and awarded the prestigious Spring Book Festival prize. In a short number of years he did his first advertising campaign for Burroughs machines, drew for the New York Times, Esquire, Life, Holiday, Harpers, and television, completed the Mellops series and published other prize-winning books for children, including Crictor, Adelaide, Emil, The Three Robbers, and Rufus. In the same period, he also published satirical books like Horrible and The Underground Sketchbook, and his first erotic collections, The Party and Fornicon. In 1970 he moved his family to Nova Scotia, before settling in 1976 in Ireland where he still lives. In the 1980s Ungerer was given a 25 year career retrospective show in Paris at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, was made a Commander of the French Order of Arts and Letters, and was invited by Jack Lang, France’s Cultural Minister, to establish a Franco-German cultural exchange. In 1991 Tomi Ungerer donated 4,500 drawings and 2,500 toys from his personal collection to the city of Strasbourg, which will honor this native son in a 70th birthday celebration later this year. In 1993, Ungerer published Die Gedanken sind frei (Thoughts are Free), a book about his World War II childhood, also published in English as Tomi, a Childhood under the Nazis. Over the years, he has vigorously continued to create art and to publish books including Poster, a collection of all his advertising work, Flix (his first children’s book since 1974) Mon Alsace, and Cats As Cats Can. In 1998 Tomi Ungerer was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Prize, the Nobel Prize of children’s publishing and, in 2001, was made an Officer of the Légion d’Honneur. Tomi Ungerer is presently serving as ambassador to the European Council.
