Lee Lorenz (1932-2022) published his first cartoon in Collier’s magazine in 1956, and two years later became a contract contributor to The New Yorker. In 1973, he was hired as the New Yorker’s Art Editor and served in that position for 25 years, until 1993. From that point, he served as the magazine’s Cartoon Editor until his retirement in 1997. Lorenz edited and wrote books on the art in The New Yorker, as well as the artists themselves, including The Art of The New Yorker (1995) (an indispensable source of information for New Yorker art afficionados) and The World of William Steig (1998). The New Yorker has published more than 1,800 of his cartoons.
