The August cover of Mad Magazine features, The MADtropolitan Museum of Art: The Trump Collection 2017.
Among the seven works one will find Kellyanne: Dancing Around the Truth by James Warhola (Andy’s nephew), based on Edgar Degas’ Dancer Tilting and Ivanka Trump and others also get the art/parody treatment. Mad editor-in-chief, John Ficarra told Vanity Fair,
“There’s obviously a huge shortage of Trump material out there and we pride ourselves on being trailblazers.
Seriously, Putin asked us to do it.”
But is the magazine’s treatment giving Trump just what he wants by making him the subject of iconic works of art? May be. Provided he has any art history awareness.
