Caricature - like a shot in the forehead

A caricaturist is an artist who observes the line between insult and sharpness, a good portraitist, with a subtle sense of irony in the perception of details, and a psychologist who captures the topical moments occurring in life. And the caricature itself has always been a formidable weapon against offenders, enemies and those in power. Dictators and the ruling elite of all epochs and peoples destroyed mockers, sending tigers to be eaten, to the scaffold, to the camps. But, despite such persecution, it was not possible to eradicate the caricature of any authority.

Caricature has its roots in the past. But in the category of art, this genre passed in the days of Leonardo da Vinci. In the 18th-19th centuries, the caricature began to thoroughly “fuel” the relations of the people with the powerful of the world. And since the twentieth century - this is an important political weapon that harms the authority of countries and politicians. Therefore, cartoonists are loved and revered by the people as much as they are hated by the authorities.
