Memories of Milhouse

And so we conclude today’s bashing of Richard Milhouse Nixon at Art Blog By Bob thanks to the works of Philip Guston and Paul Conrad. Today’s message seems to be that, if you were an artist working in the late 1960s or early 1970s and had any political consciousness, the perpetually shadowy jowls of one tragically easily caricatured public figure were always just a few pen marks or brush strokes away.
