Philip Guston's Poor Richard by Philip Guston
Book DescriptionIn 1971, the artist Philip Guston (1913-1980) created this series of caricatures of Richard Nixon, available now for the first time in book form. Produced years before Watergate and three years before Nixon's resignation, these provocative, searing condemnations of a corrupt head of state are both a remarkable, prescient political satire and an aesthetic landmark, one of few instances of an artist in the late 20th century engaging caricature in his work.
