About the Exhibit

Jules Engel (1909 – 2003) was an artist, animator, educator and film maker. He was one of the founders of the innovative animation studio UPA where he, along with Robert Cannon, developed 'toons’ such as Gerald McBoing-Boing, Madeline and Mr. Magoo.
Beginning in 1959, Engel joined forces with friend Herb Klynn to start Format Films. There, he worked on several popular cartoon shows including The Alvin Show and The Lone Ranger as well as the major animated film “Fantasia”. Engel also collaborated with Dr. Seuss, author Theodore Geisel and Oscar-winning filmmaker and designer Saul Bass. In 1962, he produced the Oscar-nominated animated short “Icarus Montgolfier Wright” which was based on a script by science fiction writer Ray Bradbury about the first human travel to the moon.
Engel's paintings, drawings and prints may be found in many museums and collections, including the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and Whitney Museum. Since 1969 Mr. Engel headed the Department of Animation And Experimental Film at the California Institute of the Arts, where he continued to create his own work as well as train a new generation of artists until his death in 2003.
