The art world never fails to surprise — first George W. Bush becomes an accomplished painter (of pets and Jay Leno), and now a burgeoning right-wing art movement is taking over the Internet. For your enjoyment, the Right-Wing Art tumblr began collecting melancholy oil paintings of Andrew Breitbart this week.
Here, Breitbart contemplates hashtag-War (artist unknown). That's a reference to Breitbart's ominous promise of "War!" with the left in the Hating Breitbart documentary trailer. You can buy the painting on Etsy for $45.
Here's an offering from Dan Lacey, the "Painter of Pancakes," featuring Speaker John Boehner's tears.
Lacey has also painted President Obama riding a unicorn, naked.
Painter Denny Pinkham went with an Anthony Weiner joke. Unfortunately, it looks like the work has been sold.
And here, a cartoon artist who simply goes by Dale offers us the best social commentary of our time. Ann Coulter encouraging Gov. Chris Christie to drink the Obama Kool-Aid. (Note how Obama holds a "Marxie" cup instead of a Dixie cup.)
Oh, and please, feast your eyes upon Margaret Thatcher as an angel of the Lord. Artist Ben Moore displayed this painting around the time of her death.
Update: The Daily Caller's Jordan Bloom (who curates rightwingart.tumblr.com) points out that this painting is actually a play on Rubens' Assumption of the Virgin Mary — Thatcher is standing in for the Mother of God.
