Love him or hate him, American President George W. Bush is God's gift to today's political cartoonists. His continual gaffes, awkward dialect, spoonerisms and bloopers are easy pickings for the cartoonists. In Britain, Steve Bell's has been highly successful in metamorphosizing Bush into a gangling dumb-headed ape in the pages of the Guardian; a version of which can be seen in our cartoon café. The Exhibition will consist of sixty original works by leading political cartoonists from the UK, the United States and Australia and span George W's time since becoming President in 2000. A number of the drawings focus on the ongoing conflict in Iraq. The Exhibition is to be opened on Burnes night by one of President Bush's fiercest critics, the Rt. Hon. George Galloway MP.
The Political Cartoon Gallery, 32 Store Street, London WC1E 7BS, is open Monday to Friday 9.30am – 5.30pm and on Saturdays between 11.30am – 5.30pm. Phone Dr Tim Benson on 020 7580 1114 for further details or images email him at info@politicalcartoon.co.uk
