In conjunction with her exhibition "The Satirical Eye" at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, featuring work by William Hogarth, James Gillray, Francisco de Goya, and Honoré Daumier, Emily Shinn explores printmaking as a medium of comedic relief, moral critique, and political protest, introducing viewers to the dynamic range of satire and caricature permeating consecutive eras of satirical prints in the 18th and 19th centuries in Great Britain, Spain, and France. The talk explores how caricature and satire become enduring icons of meaning, positioning the creative enterprise of each print in its historical context while illuminating its contemporary relevance.
