Summary:
"Inspired by the life and career of Richard Nixon (especially his rapprochement with China), this volume reproduces 72 satirical, imaginative drawings also featuring Henry Kissinger, Spiro Agnew, and John Mitchell, and an original title page, all created by Guston in 1971. Conceived as a book, the drawings were unpublished during the artist's lifetime (1913-1980) and not exhibited until September 2001 in New York. Here for the first time they are brought together not in the context of an exhibition catalogue, but as the graphic novel they were meant to be. Four decades after Guston's death, these drawings are as provocative and timely as ever"-- Provided by publisher.
