Abstract

Pavel. E. Shcherbov's caricatures were first brought to the public's attention in the satirical magazine “The Jester” in which he had published them for several years. The cartoons of this period led P.E. Shcherbov to serious success, while their chosen theme - the artistic environment of St. Petersburg at the turn of the century - brought him fame. The research is aimed at studying the artist's collaboration with this magazine through the cartoons themselves as well as his relationship with the magazine's editorial board. It records the assessments, memories and reactions of the contemporaries about Shcherbov's cartoons published in “The Jester”. The study found that the reactions were opposite at times, from sharply negative to rave reviews. A subsequent analysis of the influence of the cartoonist's works on the art world is carried out. Within this article Shcherbov's caricatures that were published in the magazine “The Jester” and other themes that the artist used are identified. As a result of the research, a close cooperation between Shcherbov and the magazine “The Jester” is revealed as well as the conclusion that the cartoonist contributed to the rise of the satirical publications, whilst his works generated great public interest, having influenced further decisions and actions of his contemporaries, is made.
