CARICATURE
[ Also see Art Exaggeration Painting Ridicule Satire ]

Nothing conveys a more inaccurate idea of a whole truth than a part of a truth so prominently brought forth as to throw the other parts into shadow. This is the art of caricature; and by the happy use of that art you might caricature the Apollo Belvidere.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

A farce is that in poetry which grotesque (caricature) is in painting. The persons and actions of a farce are all unnatural, and the manners false, that is, inconsistent with the characters of mankind; and grotesque painting is the just resemblance of this.
      - John Dryden
