Herluf Bidstrup
Birth: Sep. 10, 1912
Berlin, Germany
Death: Dec. 26, 1988
Sjślland, Denmark

Artist, Illustrator. After training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen from 1931 to 1935, he began a career as a satirical cartoonist with the Social Democratic daily press, where his cartoons of Hitler and other Nazi leaders provoked several protests from the German embassy. During the German occupation of Denmark he supplied the underground press with anti-Nazi cartoons. In 1945 he joined the communist daily "Land og Folk" where his favourite targets became the capitalists and militarism. In Denmark he gradually became isolated within an insignificant communist subculture, but his cartoons and drawings from travels in Eastern Europe were received with enthusiasm in the Eastern bloc including the Soviet Union and China, where his fame and popularity have remained undiminished long after his death. In 1964 he was awarded the international Lenin Peace Prize and was furthermore presented with the Order of the Red Flag of Labour. (bio by: Erik Skytte)
