Oliphant’s Presidents:: Twenty-Five Years of Caricature Paperback – January 1, 1990
by Pat Oliphant (Author)
Oliphant’s Presidents is a unique presentation of some of the best of this artist’s work–a review of artwork dating from 1964 and spanning more than 20 years, gauging the political peaks and valleys from LBJ and Vietnam to “Tricky Dick” and Watergate.
From School Library Journal
For a quarter of a century, Australian-born Oliphant has been chronicling the facts and foibles of the American presidency through his witty and incisive cartoons. To help readers better understand the art, an introduction is included that provides an overview of the history of caricature as well as a short biography of Pat Oliphant. The text is divided into six sections, each of which covers a president whom Oliphant has chronicled: Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush. While this book is a guide to the exhibit of Oliphant’s cartoons and sculpture that will travel to major museums across the U. S. and overseas, it can stand independent of the exhibit. An excellent resource for contemporary American history and government classes. –Roberta Lisker, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
