"Infinite Jest" at the MET

Honoré Daumier, The Past, the Present and the Future (1834)

Thomas Rowlandson, Comparitive Anatomy, 1800

"It is not nice to make fun of other people, but it is hard to resist. There is even a genre of art devoted to this often uncharitable impulse of human nature: caricature. Fine and popular artists have been producing comical, grotesque and weird images of people at least since the days of Leonardo da Vinci." - Ken Johnson, NYTimes (Infinite Jest is on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York through March 4th, 2011)
