Ambition: In Hell as it is On Earth

Ambition: In Hell as it is On Earth

“Ambition: In Hell as it is On Earth.” Art Young’s Inferno: A Journey Through Hell Six Hundred Years After Dante. New York, Delphic Studios: 1934, p. 64. Ink Drawing, 10.5 x 15 in.

This is one of Young’s many cartoons that focus on the conflict between capitalist values and socialist values rather than specific political events. In this case, Young has dramatized the capitalist worldview as a modern version of hell. This cartoon was an illustration in one of his several books inspired by Dante’s Inferno.
