Eugen Taru (1913-1991) made his debut within the exhibition of painters from Craiova (Romania) in 1927. Beginning with 1931 he had constantly published caricatures and illustrations in the newspapers ”Tânărul muncitor”, ”Scânteia tineretului”, ”România liberă”, writers’ portraits in ” Gazeta literară”. In 1949 he became regular contributor to ”Urzica” magazine. In the early 50-es, he dropped the architecture practice for good and exclusively dedicated himself to book illustration and graphic.
