Eclipse of the Sun, painted in 1926 in the Weimar Republic by Georg Grosz. The image comes via The Activist blog. Notice the dollar sign in the sun behind the headless man at the head of the table.

I have been looking at Georg Grosz art my entire life. But I think you have to be as angry as I am now, looking at the situation in America, to fully appreciate Grosz.

His Jesus in a gasmask crucifixion ("Shut up and follow orders" or something to that effect) has always been one of my favorites.
