Summary
Published in The Guardian on 25 April 2007. "The central anti-Madonna figure at the heart of Hogarth's "Gin Lane" seemed the perfect visual metaphor to sum up the career of former Russian President Boris Yeltsin on the day of his death. Aside from leading Russian from the clutches of communism into the open arms of gangster capitalism, Yeltsin was famous for his having ordered the shelling of the Russian parliament in October 1993, and for his unashamed alcholism."-- Steve Bell. A parody of Hogarth's print "Gin Lane", published in 1751.
