David Levine, master caricaturist, dead at 83
David Levine, the great illustrator who skewered politicians, artists and artists for The New York Review of Books, died today at age 83. He did more than 3,800 drawings for the Review, and hundreds more for publications such as Esquire, The New Yorker and The New York Times, according to his Times obit.
You'll recall his famous images, which include President Lyndon B. Johnson pulling up his shirt to show a scar in the shape of Vietnam, Henry Kissinger having sex on the couch with a woman whose head is a globe, and Richard Nixon as the Godfather. Here's a terrific gallery from the Review.
Watch out, St. Peter. You may be getting caricatured soon.
