    About The Work

    Illustrator Tomi Ungerer’s best-known radical protest poster, this print was first made in 1967 in response to the Vietnam War. Quintessential of the artist’s boldly etched caricature style and acerbic satire, it features a white person’s business-suited arm emblazoned with the word “EAT” shoving the Statue of Liberty into the mouth of a yellow man with slanted eyes—a violent visualization of America forcing its ideals on the Vietnamese people. New York Times critic Robert Smith lauded this work in a 2015 review saying, “It has lost none of its vehemence and, with a slight change in ethnic type, could have protested the 2003 invasion of Iraq to uncover weapons of mass destruction while spreading democracy.”
