Peter Saul, "Paintings from the 60s and 70s"
Now nearing 80, Saul anticipated Pop Art in the late 1950s and early 1960s with brash, cartoonish figurative paintings that combined caricature with loud colors that sometimes verged on the acid. His subject matter could be equally astringent, with savage send-ups of political figures and art-historical icons. Never quite fitting in with any particular style or movement, Saul forged his own path, channeling Mad Magazine through Matisse.
