American Presidents by David Levine,David Leopold,Bill Moyers,Michael Winship

By David Levine,David Leopold,Bill Moyers,Michael Winship

For greater than a part century, David Levine has taken at the strongest males of the unfastened international with in basic terms his pen and a bottle of India ink. That pen has proved to be mightier than the sword as Levine skewered, illuminated, satirized and condemned each president of the 20 th century, in addition to the main major presidents from colonial instances and the Civil battle period. His drawing of Lyndon Johnson revealing a scar within the form of Vietnam is taken into account some of the most famous (and such a lot copied) of the Vietnam period. His devastating wit and delicately go hatched drawing have uncovered the venality of the Nixon management, the phoniness of the Reagan years, the duplicity of the Clinton period, and the evil of the Bush cabal. 9 administrations have come and long gone in the course of Levine's tenure, and with a brand new one at the horizon, the artist continues to be, unbowed, unfazed, and unrelenting.
