|AESOP SAID SO, 1940|
Gellert came with his family to the USA in 1906 from his native Hungary. His early anti-war cartoons appeared in a Hungarian socialist publication Elöre. He made contact with the editorial group at The Masses, and produced illustration work for Liberator.
After the War in which he refused to fight he became a staff artist at The New Yorker and, in 1926, joined the board of the New Masses. He was active wherever censorship and destruction threatened art that didn't suit Government or Capital.
Many thanks to Michael T. Ricker who has sent me scans of the artist's work
