Title

Amerika is Devouring its Children

Description

Jay Bellioli created one of the best known of the CED posters (and one of the few that can be attributed to an individual). Amerika is Devouring its Children visually paraphrases Francisco Goya’s painting, Saturn Devouring his Son (c. 1820). Bellioli transformed Goya’s nightmare of existential dread into a critique of America’s deadly war machine.
