A Brief History of Illustration (Part III)

In the past parts, we reviewed since the origins of Illustration to 1940.
In this part we are going to check thirty years of Illustration, from 1940 to 1970.
The pervasive facts to remember for this period are:
1.- The Second World War.
2.- In 1949 we had the first Photocopier and in the 1960s appeared Xerography Photocopier.
In 1969 appears the Laser Printer.
And finally (for this period), in 1970 it appears the Dot Matrix Printer.
3.- Political posters and “lighter” colors. The last thing because the prints were made in cheap paper.
4.- In America springs the image of the Housewife ( which still is not desperate) and the images of lifestyles according to the American Dream.
5.- High badges for Advertising.
6.- The appearing of the Aerobrush.
7.- The new medium, the TV, is getting in the houses of the world.
8.- Some artistic influences of the period: Abstract Expressionism, Postwar Expressionism in Europe, Pop Art, Op Art, Color Field Painting and/or Conceptual Art, Performance Art, Photorealism, Minimalism and Neoromantic (specially in England).
9.- The illustrated novels are disappearing.

Now, the illustrators:
