Feliks Topolski RA – Chronicler of the 20th Century by Lucien Topolski

I never met my grandfather, Feliks Topolski, but his presence has surrounded my entire life. It was his eye and the sketches he had included in his fortnightly Topolski’s Chronicle that introduced me to the important political and cultural figures, events, places and movements of the last century; Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, General Douglas MacArthur; Laurence Olivier, Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg; Chicago, Havana, Bergen-Belsen; Punks, Hippies, Black Panthers, Maasai and the Viet Cong.
