Thomas Nast: art of populism
Posted in the Education Forum
#1 Feb 12, 2013
Thomas Nast (1840 1902) was a German-born American caricaturist and editorial cartoonist who is considered to be the "Father of the American Cartoon". He was the scourge of Boss Tweed and the Tammany Hall political machine. Among his notable works were the creation of the modern version of Santa Claus and the political symbol of the elephant for the Republican Party (source: Wikipedia).
Thomas Nast gained great public ambition creating politically and socially relevant sarcasm and wit cartoons designed to illuminate populist commentary on otherwise previously regarded somber issues. His legacy continues to motivate defenders of democratic populism who believe that personal perspectives on governance and culture are as important as formal accreditation.
The dialogue qualities of the Nast cartoons and the general populist Nast conversation era reflects the modern day ornament marketability of survey-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Gangs of New York" (2002).
