Crime and Punishment
The New Museum’s landmark career retrospective on Peter Saul, titled “Crime and Punishment,” showcases more than 60 paintings made by the New York-based artist since the 1960s.
Saul, who is originally from San Francisco, is best known for absurdist-leaning caricatures of political figures, often in the context of highly stylized cartoon-like scenes that function as satirical allegories of historical events.
