Infinite Jest: Caricature and Satire from Leonardo to Levine
September 13, 2011--March 4, 2012
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The exhibition explores caricature and satire in its many forms from the Italian Renaissance to the present, drawn primarily from the rich collection of this material in the Museum's Department of Drawings and Prints. The show includes drawings and prints by Leonardo da Vinci, Eugène Delacroix, Francisco de Goya, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Enrique Chagoya alongside works by artists more often associated with humor, such as James Gillray, Thomas Rowlandson, Honoré Daumier, Al Hirschfeld, and David Levine. Many of these engaging caricatures and satires have never been exhibited and are little known except to specialists.
Accompanied by a catalogue.
The exhibition is made possible by The Schiff Foundation.
The catalogue is made possible by the Charles Bloom Foundation.
