Arguably one of the most demanding of all forms of illustration, often requiring the capturing of a live event, insightful drawing and accurate visual communication, reportage and documentary illustration has a long and illustrious history, including such artists and illustrators as Otto Dix, George Grosz, Paul Hogarth, Robert Weaver and Ronald Searle. Reportage and documentary illustration provides a direct connection to the world we live in and its illustrators are often noted for their personal visual language and for their in-depth knowledge and cultural understanding of their chosen subject matter.
