Frank Gutierrez American Doughboy and Rat-In-Boots Lady with Flag Drawing P1283

Chicano artist Frank Gutierrez is having a whale of time here mixing and morphing iconic imagery into a pointed nightmare. Gustave Doré’s famous take on Puss-In-Boots is has its head removed and the cat changed to a rat before being plopped onto to the body of an ultrapatriotic matron standing proudly next to a dubious American foot-soldier of the War To End All Wars, while behind them lurks a classic fat-cat businessman. We know what Frank’s getting at. Spectacular pen and ink and mixed media drawing. Undated. But we can tell what war is dragging on.

Price on request.
