March 18, 2011–Ongoing

The exhibition reveals the power of cartoons to illuminate both human nature and history as well as provoke laughter and reflection. The diverse selection of images on display here represents the fascinating world of caricatures, political cartoons, comics, animation art, graphic novels, and illustrations. These treasured cartoons from the Swann and other cartoon collections indicate the broad range of holdings in the Library of Congress.

This exhibition and the Swann Gallery are made possible by the Swann Foundation for Caricature and Cartoon.
