The Republican Party Down to Date—

“The Republican Party Down to Date—” 1924. Published in Art Young and Heywood Broun’s The Best of Art Young. New York: Vanguard Press, 1936. Ink Drawing, 6.5 x 11.5 in.

In this cartoon, Young criticizes Republican president Calvin Coolidge by comparing him to Lincoln. Lincoln is depicted as a tall, classical bust, while Coolidge is comically small and dressed in a business suit. This suggests that the leaders of the Republican Party have deteriorated from heroes like Lincoln to unremarkable men like Coolidge.
