As in the legendary New Yorker cartoon, artist Pablo Helguera retrieves the caricature technique to produce an exaggerated and sometimes distorted portrait of the art world. This book compiles a selection of 187 drawings, translated for the first time into Spanish, which the author published between 2009 and 2016. This edition includes a foreword by the art critic and curator Octavio Zaya.
