Pitch Europe fall

Italy and France agreed to carry out joint patrols off Tunisia's coast to block migrants headed for Europe. The European Commission called on France and Italy to "get over the dispute" and come together towards a "European solution."

I agree with Mike: that's a very powerful painting!

Something I've noticed in my short time here is that the work of most of the artists outside the US -- especially the European and Russian artists -- aren't so much cartoons as we know them, but more like paintings. This is especially true of Bertelli's pieces. This isn't a cartoon, Matteo, this is a goddamn' painting.

Interesting, though, to note that even though it's titled "Europe Fall", the choice of colors -- the deep blues and cold-steel grays -- is more suggestive of "Europe Winter".

I'm with Spiros, too, on it not needing a caption. The outline of Southern Europe -- the Spanish coast, the "boot" of Italy -- is immediately discernible to anyone with even a basic knowledge of European geography. My favorite cartoons have always been the ones that need no words.

Needless to say, I've added my vote to the pile. Bravo, Matteo!

Spiros, I agree with you, I thought that it was not understood.
Me too I prefer it without writing
