Exhibition: The Gout and the Guillotine

Saints Tekakwitha and Serra Ha, University of San Diego, San Diego

Visual Arts

This exhibition, centered principally on the work of James Gillray (1756-1815), explores how the grotesque imagination of 18th century satirists interrogated the apparently distinct realms of physical pain and revolutionary politics. Caricatures of the diametrically opposed political thinkers Edmund Burke and Thomas Paine are presented alongside images of that event about which they most fervently disagreed: the French Revolution and its aftermath. And hovering above it all is Gillray’s horrific representation of the body in pain: “The Gout."
