And A Few More Satirical Abominations
Artist Unknown, (A lampoon against the aristocracy) "The rascals fear the reverberators." engraving from 1789. The title is no doubt a horribly butchered version of the original French text but still sounds awesome, almost makes me think of a David Bowie album title.
Artist unknown - With the second order of the State (watercolour, brown ink, brown washing, feather drawing) 1789-99
Political satire of the French Revolution..
Artist unknown "Caricature against the Aristocracy" 18th-19th C.
Artist unknown "Patriotic hunting for the large animal." 18th-19th C.
I might have posted that top image previously, not sure. I went ahead and ran a full week of satirical artworks, largely at the request of Paul Rumsey. I've had a much larger week of political cartoons with monsters planned for a long time but still need to really dig into my sources to find the good stuff. Particularly WW2, I know there's a lot of crazy caricatures of nazi war machines, tentacled swastika beasts stretching across the planet, things like that, all of which I'll be posting at a later date. Any suggestions for good places to look would be very welcome.
