Jerelle Kraus, whose thirteen-year tenure as Op-Ed artwork director a long way exceeds that of the other paintings director or editor, unveils a riveting account of operating on the Times.

All the Art encompasses a satiric portrayal of John McCain, a vintage caricature of Barack Obama via Jules Feiffer, and a drawing of Hillary Clinton and Obama by means of Barry Blitt. but if Frank wealthy wrote a column discussing Hillary Clinton completely, the Times refused to permit Blitt to painting her. approximately any concept is palatable in prose, but editors understand images as a much larger risk. Confucius underestimated the variety of phrases a picture is worthy; the thousand-fold strength of an image can also be its curse.

Op-Ed's topic is the realm, and its illustrations are created by means of the world's best image artists. The 142 artists whose paintings seems to be during this publication hail from thirty international locations and 5 continents, and their 324 pictures-gleaned from a complete of 30,000-reflect artists' universal force to speak their inventive visions and to stir our shiny cultural-political pot.
