Oscar Cesare cartoon government Pork Barrel House

THESE BUILDINGS INCULCATE A SPIRIT OF PATRIOTIC PRIDE WHICH IS NOT MEASURABLE IN DOLLARS AND CENTS" Representative Clark by OSCAR CESARE (1885-1948). Shown is a large pork barrel with a capital dome full of hogs marked "Hog (Hoc) signo vinces" meaning "in this sign you will conquer". The meaning of the time may be lost, but it still fits today. This editorial cartoon was done for the New York Daily Sun around the time of the First World War. 14.5" x 23" heavy Strathmore drawing board. Illustration is 12" x 16". Comes with all the marks and tags in the margins/back of an editorial cartoon. This is an original not a copy! Cesare was strongly opposed to the United States entering the war.
