Donald Trump beats North Korea's Kim Jong-Un, sort of, at Art Basel in Miami Beach
A painting of Donald Trump dressed as Wonder Woman and defeating “Rocket Man” — North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un — is a star attraction at international art festival Art Basel, which opens Thursday in Miami Beach. Also on display at the fair — which has become the Americas’ main art dealing hub since its first event in 2002 — are various works by Roy Lichtenstein and a painting by Willem de Kooning valued at $35 million. The painting featuring the US president, entitled “President Trump Becomes a Wonder Woman, Unifies the Country and Fights Rocket Man,” was one of the top works at a private viewing on Wednesday. The parody piece by Peter Saul shows Trump in the iconic garb of the female superhero, punching caricatures of Kim Jong-Un. A 1979 painting by the Netherlands’ de Kooning is likely the show’s most expensive, valued at $35 million, according to Paul Gray of the Richard Grey Gallery, where it is being shown.
