By Pulitzer Prize

Barry Blitt, contributor, The New Yorker

Barry Blitt ha vinto il Premio Pulitzer 2019 Editorial Cartooning per le vignette pubblicate su The New Yorker.
Per un lavoro che mette a nudo le personalità e le politiche che emergono dalla Casa Bianca e Trump con uno stile ingannevolmente dolce all'acquerello e con caricature apparentemente gentili.
