Abstract

Stylistic features of satirical graphics by P. Kovzhun and E. Kozak in Lviv humorous magazines of 20–30s yearsof the XX century are determined. It is noted that the artistic style of these artists was influenced by Western European art trends, such as: modernism, expressionism, cubism, futurism. In their graphics, cartoonists use similar tools to achieve a greater effect – grotesque, allegory, zoomorphism. It is traced that each of these artists had his own individual style of satirical illustration, which was supported by national motives. The article draws parallels between German and Lviv satirical magazine graphics on the example of the magazine "Simplicissimus". It was found out that P. Kovzhun and E. Kozak, as leading artists of humorous publications, in addition to highly artistic illustrations, made high-quality graphic design for the magazines «Maski», «Zyz», «Komar». The artistic design of the covers and technical features of these publications are analyzed. Most satirical magazines had a symmetrical hierarchical composition of the title page with a limited polychrome palette. The logoname on the cover of the magazine was harmoniously perceived together with the title illustration. The cover was made in color, usually in two colors, magazine covers were monochrome. The semantic load of visual satirical material in humorous editions of the interwar period is established.
