Caricatures/Comics

 

    While I was studying in Iasi, in 1962-63, my coleagues and I were given for accomodation very large rooms; these were the classroms of the closed-down Teological Seminary. In order to fit in as many as possible (14-20!), the lockers were outside on the hallway. The inside of the locker doors were covered with all sorts of decorations inherited from former students or sometimes and out of necesity these were covered with magazines cutouts amongst which were two actresses in vogue at the time: Brigitte Bardot and Claudia Cardinale. This fact started to a little boring so an ideea came into my mind and I stuck the picture of a ... cow cut out from a magazine! For the border of the door I used the triangular labels from melted cheese that featured at that time the head of a cow. Similar cutouts joined in and in a couple of months' time the locker door was creating sensation.

    In the second year we were accomodated in the "30 Decembri" dormitory on the Copou hill and this time a decorated the inside of the locker door with several good caricatures/comics cut out from "Urzica" magazine.

    When I finished the study year I saved the favourite caricature/comic: "Hope" by Ion Popescu-Gopo. I managed to keep it. Other have been gathered over the years and I ended up with an amusing collection.

    At present the collection consists of a brief with numerous cutouts and 19 albums + 100 mini-albums by authors.
