Dissent in Art

The excellent web magazine Slate has a compendium of political cartoons from around the world, regularly updated. As the saying goes, a picture is often worth a thousand press releases. These below and many others on Putin are found in the Europe index at Slate. The first two are by Yuri Cherepanov, whose cartoons for the Soviet-era satire magazine Krokodil were well-known 30 years ago. The magazine came back two years ago under editor Mostovshchikov, and with Cherepanov as well.
