CDR-1199: SR Set: Political Satire and other Ridicule

Caricature and satire (political and otherwise) offers an outlet for social criticism. Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit —and pen and pencil-- as a weapon. The intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement has tempted many artists, including Daumier, Goya, Toulouse-Lautrec, Diego Rivera, William Blake and many French and English cartoonists.
