Simplicissimus art by Erich Schilling
Cover illustration for Simplicissimus, 10 February 1935. The magician makes the Eastern pact transform into a "lovely" peace dove. 

Erich Schilling made his first caricatures for Der Wahren Jacob. He was on the editorial board of Simplicissimus magazine from 1907 to 1944, and also contributed to Kladderadatsch. Although initially opposed to the Nazi Party, he eventually became a supporter of the new regime. He continued to work for Simplicissimus after its transformation to national-socialist propaganda paper. Yet when the Third Reich collapsed after Hitler's suicide in 1945 he too took his life on the same day.
