THE ART OF POLITICS OR POLITICS IN ART

 

Gallery exhibition October 1 – November 12, 2016.

For Thomas Nast political caricatures please click here.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”  Preamble to the United States Constitution.

In this exhibit The Old Print Shop, Inc., and Boston Rare Maps celebrate this Election year by examining the political history of the United States as seen through printed images.  We describe the printed objects, give brief histories of the political figures involved, and attempt to explain their significance.
