Philip Guston and Richard Nixon

An exhibition of Philip Guston's drawings includes these caricatures of Richard Nixon. The drawings date from 1971 and 1975, a time of political assassinations, war and domestic strife.  From the Guerrilla Girls  to Richard Serra's Abu Ghraib lithograph we are reminded that art has a major role to play in our new present.
