Even as the shadow of Nazism covered Germany these simple cartoons of a father and son glimmered with the hope of a new day after the shadow engulfed the country a return to a time of innocence lost A beautifully happy wordless comic strip from 1930s Berlin focusing on the joyfully happy relationship between what otherwise would be two stock comic strip characters Even affecting because of the historical essays that begin and end the volume giving context to the world Plauen lived in his struggles with censorship under the Nazis and his eventual death awaiting trial in a Gestapo cell Delightful uick read Always a nice visual perspective change to look at comics for a while These mostly wordless comic strips featuring a sometimes belligerent often loving round bald and mustached dad and his mischievous little mop topped boy called appropriately enough FATHER AND SON are beautifully drawn and hilariously inventive EO Plausen the pseudonym of the German political cartoonist and illustrator Erich Ohser was denounced by neighbors late in WWII and committed suicide as he waited for his death sentence to get carried out It's hard to comprehend the horror he lived as his world fell apart when you page through his fantastic creation I have to say I was feeling depressed when I picked up the book and there was no Allied air fleet bombing my town into rubble or fascist leader taking my country to hell well maybe a bit of that last part is true and the funny stories expertly rendered left me smiling and hopeful I imagine they did the same for the artist and his contemporaries Beloved Condemned A Cartoonist in Nazi GermanyElke SchulzeErich Ohser became internationally famous for his comic strips in the 1930s but the carefree world of his Father and Son gives little hint of the fate that would be suffered by its creator After Ohser was driven to take his own life his friend Erich Kästner wrote “We’re going to mourn him by celebrating his drawings” Ohser was a passionate graphic artist whose versatile talent spanned many techniues pencil India ink writing ink watercolor and colored pencil Alongside his journalistic cartoons and illustrations a large body of work ranges from freehand portraits and landscapes to nudes and studies of people observed in cafésBorn in Vogtland in 1903 he spent his childhood and youth in the newly prosperous industrial town of Plauen Here following his father’s wishes he studied to be a locksmith; for the rest of his life he would recall this period as drudgery The town paid particular attention to the cultivation and advancement of drawing—this specialty was related to the international success of “Plauen lace” a brand name covering a range of openwork textiles Ohser’s talent was recognized early; encouraged by his teachers he made the move to Leipzig in 1920 and soon became a confident and successful student He was awarded a scholarship and had his first one man show in PlauenHe was tall heavy set and hard of hearing Those close to him described him as humorous awkward curmudgeonly The author Hans Fallada speaks of “an elephant who could walk a tightrope”More see Leipzig Ohser met the writer Erich Kästner and a productive friendship and collaboration developed between them They achieved their first joint success while Ohser was still in art school at the well respected Akademie für graphische Künste und Buchgewerbe and Kästner was establishing himself as a newspaper wit Even as a student Ohser gained recognition as a book illustrator and newspaper cartoonist He contributed drawings to Kästner’s articles and books three of Kästner’s early poetry collections appeared with illustrations and cover designs by OhserOhser also met the newspaper editor Erich Knauf who published both Kästner’s writings and Ohser’s drawings As an influential journalist and poet Knauf became a formative voice in the Weimar Republic Erich Ohser Erich Kästner and Erich Knauf were united in their world view and in their aesthetic convictionsAll three preferred economy of form and brevity of wit Their eye was radically modern and unsentimental with a severely analytical perspective on the contemporary—expressed graphically in Ohser’s case At the Leipziger Akademie Ohser had experimented with all the genres and techniues of drawing He soon developed a signature style which varied with the subject from the emphatically artless scratchy line of his caricatures and illustrations to his ingratiating cartoons and comics from the color of a few exploratory drawings to the rigorous black and white of his unbound sheetsFollowing their initial successes the “three Erichs” relocated to Berlin at the end of the 1920s If Leipzig was a literary town Berlin was a newspaper town and it became their stage and artistic home—for Knauf and Ohser it would be the last Knauf’s great panache and fresh ideas as the new editor of the publishing house Büchergilde Gutenberg led to its flowering; Ohser became an important cartoonist and illustrator for him Ohser’s illustrations for the popular Russian humorist and satirist Mikhail Zoshchenko’s Die Stiefel des Zaren The Czar’s Boots in 1930 were received with particular enthusiasmOhser had studied the great traditions of European graphics and caricature Adapting these inspirations to his own style he earned a reputation as a caricaturist long before he came into his own as E O Plauen amid the artistic and political upheavals of his time An alert observer he was bitingly critical of the excesses of political extremism in the Weimar Republic Kästner’s fourth volume of poetry Gesang zwischen den Stühlen Song Between Two Stools appeared in 1932 with Ohser’s design and caused a nationwide sensation as the previous books had doneOhser was particularly aggressive in using his skills as an artist against the emerging National Socialists In his drawings he exposed the megalomania of Hitler and Goebbels and depicted their cohorts as gangs of dull witted thugs employing all the weapons of caricature exaggeration and distortion one sided emphasis and intentional grotesuerie The blunt visual language he developed for this purpose is parsimonious but effective The originals of these caricatures many of them published in Vorwärts do not survive; Knauf and Ohser are said to have burned them in the spring of 1933 for fear of persecutionTheir concern was not unjustified With the rise of the Nazis the “three Erichs” all had to make compromises in order to stay in Germany and survive By this time Ohser had a family he married his one time fellow student Marigard Bantzer herself an artist and children’s book illustrator in December 1931 Their marriage was soon followed by the birth of their son ChristianAfter Hitler took power 1933 Ohser’s ridicule of the Nazis made it almost impossible for him to find work Thus it was a stroke of luck when the editor of the Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung asked him for ideas for a comic strip Ohser’s proposal a strip about the day to day adventures of a good natured father and his imaginative and unruly son won him over Ohser’s well known and canny new editor was able to pull strings at the Propaganda Ministry allowing him to work—as long as he used a pseudonym and worked only on nonpolitical newspaper comics Ohser who was not only a great inventor of gags and funny stories but also liked to play with language and dialect remembered his Vogtland beginnings Erich Ohser from Plauen became “E O Plauen” Though this pen name was originally intended simply as a safety measure it became so popular that the artist’s real name was practically forgottenThe strips that Ohser delivered every week between 1934 and 1937 uickly won him an audience of millions and brought him financial success and prominence Father and Son were not superheroes but rather as a contemporary critic remarked “circus acrobats of life” inhabiting a humane utopia Father and Son made its creator famous during his time but he was unable to avoid official appropriation Father and Son was used to advertise the Nazis’ annual Winterhilfswerk charity drive Similarly the marketing of Ohser’s characters was sometimes a frustration to him a situation he referenced in the strip as it wound down Ohser’s creations were duplicated imitated took on an uncontrollable life of their own Father and Son like their creator could not escape the evils that beset themHe ended the strip in 1937 but kept the pseudonym and continued to work on cartoons caricatures and illustration With his subtle humor and lighthearted pen he addressed the entire range of issues covered in the illustrated magazines—sports new technology sex roles celebrities—striking his own idiosyncratic noteIn 1940 he was given the opportunity to work for Joseph Goebbels’s newly launched newspaper Das Reich Ohser eventually accepted—in part because with the outbreak of World War II employment at Goebbels’s paper ensured he would not be drafted So Ohser drew political caricatures of the enemies of the Reich while still trying to differentiate between the Nazi regime and his beloved Germany Privately steadfast in detesting National Socialism and increasingly disillusioned about the war Ohser was walking a fraying tightropeOhser felt that characterizations like “pretty” or “ugly” were a priori suspect and particularly inappropriate in an artistic context if not plain wrong The comprehensive reviews of his large one man show in Berlin in 1942 demonstrate that Ohser’s drawing found recognition compatible with his principles For example Werner Fiedler wrote in the Deutsche Allgemeine ZeitungPlauen’s gift is to look as though he doesn’t have one This charming con man convinces us he has forgotten everything he ever knew about composition anatomy and the load bearing behavior of biological structures because he has moved to a new phase one of innocenceOhser himself spoke out in 1943 in his In Defense of the Art of DrawingIf you draw the world becomes beautiful far beautiful Trees that used to be just scrub suddenly reveal their form Animals that were ugly make you see their beauty If you then go for a walk you’ll be amazed how different everything can look Less and less is ugly if every day you recognize beautiful forms in ugliness and learn to love them Don’t be bamboozled by the virtuosity of artists which in many cases is terribly hollow Vanity always trips us up—it’s very human A small drawing that comes from the eye and the heart is worth than sixty suare feet of inhibited dishonest hack workLike the other two Erichs Ohser considered himself a patriot and hoped the nightmare would soon end Knauf and Kästner had found refuge working in film also believing the era could be weathered But the war was coming home to Germany’s civilians—all three men lost their homes to bombings Ohser and Knauf found shelter in a building on the edge of devastated Berlin There imagining they were safe they aired their resentment and desperation in jokes about Hitler Goebbels and the hopeless war—and were denounced by their neighbors They were arrested in the spring of 1944 and uickly sentenced to death Ohser eluded his executioners and committed suicide the night before the hearing He was just forty one years old His friend Erich Knauf was executed a month later Kästner was the only one of the “three Erichs” to survive the Third ReichWith pencil in hand Erich Ohser explored his world again and again finding the comic and grotesue aspects of any situation Even after his tragic end his art endures as does the encouragement he gave us to rediscover his world and oursAdapted from the afterword to Father and Son by EO Plauen translated by Joel Rotenberg recently published by New York Review Comics very sweet slapstick Bộ truyện tranh tuyệt vời hài hước và dí dỏm về tình cha con Tuy nhiên cái mình không thích nhất ấy là việc NXB thêm phần Hội thoại vào các khung Theo mình biết thì bộ truyện tranh này không lời Tuy vậy người đọc vẫn có thể hình dung ra câu chuyện về Cha và Con Thật đáng tiếc Mình nghĩ dụng ý của việc thêm Hội thoại là để các em nhỏ dễ hình dung hơn nhưng bản thân mình thì thấy việc thêm hội thoại vào bị gượng ép uá Mostly wordless strips are fun and worth reading even without their historical importance This is a very nice edition of them too یکی بود یکی نبود یک پدر بود و یک پسراین قصه نیست پدر نامش اریش ازر بود بیست و هشت ساله بود که پسرش ، کریستیان ، به دنیا آمد این پدر و پسر به راستی بودند و قصه هایشان هم فقط قصه نیست some of my childhood dreams
