William Gropper(1897-1977)
Who is William Gropper?
William Victor "Bill" Gropper (December 3, 1897 – January 3, 1977) was a U.S. cartoonist, painter, lithographer, and muralist. A committed radical, Gropper is best known for the political work which he contributed to such left wing publications as The Revolutionary Age, The Liberator, The New Masses, The Worker, and The Morning Freiheit.

Gropper was born to Harry and Jenny Gropper in New York City, the eldest of six children. His parents were Jewish immigrants from Romania and Ukraine,[1] who were both employed in the city's garment industry, living in poverty on New York's Lower East Side.[2] His mother worked hard sewing piecework at home.[3] Harry Gropper, Bill's father, was university-educated and fluent in 8 languages, but was unable to find employment in America in a field for which he was suited.[4] This failure of the American economic system to make proper use of his father's talents doubtlessly contributed to William Gropper's lifelong antipathy toward capitalism.

Gropper's alienation was accentuated when on March 24, 1911, he lost a favorite aunt in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, a disaster which resulted from locked doors and non-existent exits in a New York sweatshop.[5] Some 146 workers burned or jumped to their deaths on that day in what was New York's greatest human catastrophe prior to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Gropper's interest in art began at a young age. As a child of six young he took chalk to the sidewalks, decorating the concrete with elaborate picture stories of cowboys and Indians that extended around the block.[4] As a child on the way to school, Gropper used to lug bundles of his mother's piecework sewing to the sweatshops by which she was employed.[3]

At age 13, Gropper took his first art instruction at the radical Ferrer School, where he studied under George Bellows and Robert Henri.[6]

In 1913, Gropper graduated from public school, earning a medal in art and a scholarship to the National Academy of Design. The strong-willed Gropper refused to conform at the academy, however, and was subsequently expelled.[7] He attempted to attend high school that fall, but finances prevented his attendance and he was forced to seek work to help support his family.[7] He worked as an assistant in a clothing store, earning $5 a week.[3]

In 1915, Gropper showed a portfolio of his work to Frank Parsons, the head of the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts. The work so impressed Parsons that Gropper was offered a scholarship to the school. Gropper continued to work reduced hours for reduced wages in the clothing store while he continued his artistic education.[8] In the subsequent two years, Gropper gained recognition and awards for his work.

In 1917, Gropper was offered a position on the staff of the New York Tribune, where over the next several years he earned a steady income doing drawings for the paper's special Sunday feature articles. At this time, the politically radical Gropper was brought into the orbit of original and innovative artists around the left wing New York monthly, The Masses. After The Masses was banned from the U.S. Mail in 1917, due to its unflinching anti-militarism, Gropper joined artists like Robert Minor, Maurice Becker, Art Young, Lydia Gibson, Hugo Gellert, and Boardman Robinson in contributing to its successor, The Liberator.

Gropper also contributed his art to The Revolutionary Age, a revolutionary socialist weekly edited by Louis C. Fraina and (in later issues) John Reed, a publication which narrowly predated the establishment of the American Communist Party, as well as to The Rebel Worker, a magazine of the Industrial Workers of the World, an anarcho-syndicalist union.

WILLIAM GROPPER (1897-1977) "Keep Him on the Run/Buy More Bonds." [POSTER / WORLD WAR II]

Lot 161: WILLIAM GROPPER (1897-1977) "Keep Him on the Run/Buy More Bonds." [POSTER / WORLD WAR II]

Auction Date: Jun 24, 2021

Estimate: $6,000 - $9,000

Description: WILLIAM GROPPER (1897-1977)
"Keep Him on the Run/Buy More Bonds." Maquette for a Liberty Loan poster, circa 1943-44. Oil on canvas. 1016x762 mm; 40x30 inches. Signed "Gropper" lower left. Frame has plaque that reads "Presented by the War Finance Division of/the United States Treasury Department to/Northampton County/for Meritorious Service in the War Bond Program."

Exhibited: ACA Galleries and Associated American Artists.

Born in New York City into a family of Jewish immigrants, Gropper is best known for satirical cartoons and images about war, politics, and social injustice. He began his career with the New York Tribune and published in mainstream magazines like Vanity Fair, but he also contributed to more radical left-wing magazines, including The Masses and Liberator, and Communist publications, such as Freiheit and the Daily Worker. Though Gropper was later branded a Communist and was blacklisted in the post-war McCarthy era, this did not deter the artist from continuing to create satirical images that revealed his political and social views which conservatives deemed radical.

This large maquette for a well-known Liberty Loan poster reflects Gropper's dedication to raising opposition to fascism in Europe in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

W. Gropper Lithograph of Fiddler from "The Shtetl" 1970

Lot 153: W. Gropper Lithograph of Fiddler from "The Shtetl" 1970

Auction Date: Jun 24, 2021

Estimate: $400 - $600

Description: William Gropper (American, 1897-1977). Color lithograph of a Klezmer violinist from "The Shtetl" series - 1970. Hand signed in pencil on lower right. Hand numbered 62/120 in pencil on lower left. Stamped in red on lower right just above the signature as well. A wonderful depiction of a fiddler playing Klezmer music for townspeople who dance and clap to his tune. This composition comes from William Gropper's suite entitled "The Shtetl" (1970). Size of color lithograph: 14" L x 11" W (35.6 cm x 27.9 cm) Size of matte: 16.75" L x 14" W (42.5 cm x 35.6 cm)

According to Jewish Heritage expert Samuel D. Gruber, "In the 1920s, Gropper began work as a staff cartoonist for the Yiddish Morning Freiheit. His many scathing cartoon attacks on capitalism in the Freiheit often included variants of typical anti-Semitic stereotypes. He also was a regular contributor English language left-wing publications such as the Daily Worker and the World. He was a founder of New Masses, to which he contributed some of his best political work, including, after Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, attacks on Hitler and Nazi aggression."
