Chain Reaction by Paul Conrad

Paul Francis Conrad (1924-2010) was an American political cartoonist and chief editorial cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times (1964-1993).He achieved notoriety for his many cartoons about the downfall of Richard Nixon. His depictions of political figures in bronze follow the caricature style of his commentary on the politics of the day, displaying the humor, pathos, and satire of his subjects. Conrad has also successfully executed some major pieces of public sculpture, including the Chain Reaction peace sculpture in Santa Monica seen here.
