Black and white image of a donkey wearing a suit holding the arm of a man lying in bed (as though taking the man’s pulse). Man in the bed identified as Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, composition identified as borrowing stylistically from Francisco de Goya’s Los Caprichos print series (after Capricho #40 ).
