Stern Friedl

Tel Aviv, Israel

16.01.1917 - 29.10.2006


Prior to his 90th birthday, the most famous Israeli cartoonist Friedl Stern did not live just a few months. If it had happened otherwise, the celebration of her jubilee on January 16 would have been one of the most notable events in Israeli secular life. Fragile Friedl Stern was the only female caricaturist who worked in Israel since the founding of the state.
About her filmed a documentary film “Face Friedl.”
Stern, who has long taught at the Bezalel Academy of Art and has grown more than one generation of artists, has developed for herself a simple and capacious rule: “Less politics – more humanity.”
Nevertheless, the work of Stern was highly appreciated by the central newspapers “Davar” and “Bemahane”, where Friedl was a regular employee.
