Here’s the perfect hint: A mocking depiction of King Louis-Philippe as the Rabelais character Gargantua. The caricature might as well be Trump. He feeds on bundles of swag delivered by his obsequious minions and, from his outhouse throne, he shits out appointments, titles, and other rewards for the privileged class. Not incidentally, Honoré Daumier went to prison for six months for this 1831 lithograph after its publication in a satirical illustrated periodical that appeared weekly in Paris, La Caricature morale, politique et littéraire. Hat’s off to my staff of thousands for reminding me of it.
And here’s a modern version of Trump on the cover of Heathcote’s Williams’s American Porn. The cover design is attributed to Colin Gibson Guano Grafix. But it is unclear who did the brilliant caricature.
