Putin by Bush

This is the greatest painting ever painted by a human being. Look well. This is up there with Guernica and the Scream. It is primitive and visceral. It gives Putin the Dorian Gray treatment he has so long been asking for. Look at those creepy scabs of eyebrows. Look at the murky mud-mask of the rest of the face. The background is purple, indicating deep turmoil and mistrust, like you might find in a purple state.

  1. The Ehud Olmert painting looks a bit like Richard Gerstl’s Self Portrait, Laughing. It’s a shame Bush was in the wrong era for Central European Expressionist angst, as he might have been in the modernist canon by now.
