HUBERT BERKE 1908 -1979

POETS

JOURNEY TO THE MOON
WALK IN THE YEAR 2000
LES GAUCHERS DE BLAUVAC
ODYSSEY

Inspired by trips and literature, Berke creates these couple of series incorporating a mixture of grotesque and science-fiction. They are odd, exaggerated and curious, displaying the variation of a theme in a number of colorful pictures filled with lines.

The song “Circe” (Friedrich Hollaender / Daliah Lavi) inspired Berke to create the odyssey series. The drawings show a satirical interpretation of the story, revealing images with the omnipresence of Circe’s pig.
