OLIPHANT, PATRICK - Editorial cartoon 1984, W.C. Fields as Uncle Sam commenting on Third World election. Hilarious stuff

Media Type: Ink Wash
Art Type: Strip Art
Artists: Pat Oliphant All

Pat Oliphant Election Observer Editorial Comic Strip Original Art dated 3-26-84 (Universal Press Syndicate, 1984).
Nothing new about the concept of election interference. Oliphant scores a ferocious salvo against the intrusive U.S. news media as they stick their big noses into a Third World polling-place. The finishing touch is a caricature of comedian W.C. Fields (left) as a more obnoxious version of Uncle Sam. Brilliant stuff, here.
Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 15.5" x 10".
Light toning. Excellent condition.
