By Sheri Klein
'Art and Laughter' seems to be again to comedian masters comparable to Hogarth and Daumier and to Dada, Surrealism and dad artwork, asking what makes us chuckle and why. It explores using comedy in artwork from satire and irony to pun, parody and black and bawdy humour. Encouraging laughter within the hallowed area of the gallery, Sheri Klein praises the modern artist as ‘clown’ - usually missed in favour of the position of artist as ‘serious’ commentator - and takes us on a travel of the comedian paintings of purple Grooms, Cary Leibowitz, ‘The furry Who’, Richard Prince, Bruce Nauman, Jeff Koons, William Wegman, Vik Muniz and lots of extra. She seeks out these infrequent smiles in artwork - from the Mona Lisa onwards - and highlights too the pleasures of the lovable, the camp and the downright kitsch.
