Ben poco nella vita sfugge al ridicolo. I vignettisti sono una grande risorsa dell’umanità.

Dimentichiamoci per qualche minuto di Mr Trump, Mrs Clinton, Mrs May, Mr Hollande, Frau Merkel e compagnia. Le caricature di Mrs May, di mr Corbyn e di Sua Maestà la Regina di Inghilterra sono esilaranti.

Suvvia, siamo buoni: la Santa Pasqua è vicina.

Dimentichiamoci anche di Gentiloni, di Renzi e di Grillo.

«Sipping from a mug of tea in a dapper open-necked shirt, and speaking with an immaculate Radio 4 voice, Gerald Scarfe might not come across like a controversial psychedelic artist, but for the last 60 years the caricaturist has been putting out some of the most consistently disturbing, graphic and recognizable images of people in power.

His most memorable images — the bloodthirsty, beaked Margaret Thatcher; the looming evil headmaster in Pink Floyd’s “The Wall;” the war-mongering, Mickey Mouse-eared Tony Blair — have transcended the artist himself and furrowed into the popular subconscious.» [Cnn]
