Jeff MacNelly, American, 1947-2000
Jeff MacNelly was among our most famous snow birds to the Key West winter. Jeff was one of America’s most influential, sharpest wits and finest artists in editorial cartooning for three decades. He is arguably the greatest cartoonist ever, certainly the most critically acclaimed of the 20th Century.
As the Chicago Tribune’s Syndicated Editorial Cartoonist with three Pulitzer Prizes to his credit, Jeff twice received the coveted National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben Award making him a pivotal national public figure. He also created the popular comic strip Shoe and illustrated Dave Barry’s column for The Miami Herald’s award winning Sunday Tropic Magazine. Jeff’s political cartoons were frequently reprinted in Newsweek Magazine and the Sunday New York Times and syndicated in thousands of newspapers around the world.
Jeff MacNelly’s fine art demonstrates astonishing originality and dazzling artistry. One is enchanted by his irrepressible sensitivity and ability to connect. His work is powerful, brilliant, deft and always engaging.
