William Kentridge  Untitled (Man with Megaphone)  1998
From MoMA:

The megaphone first appeared in Kentridge’s work in 1990, and it continues to be a common motif. Megaphones “indicate what needs to be heard or seen, outside of oneself,” the artist has said. The nude figure is both a self-portrait and a picture of Felix Teitelbaum, one of the main protagonists in Kentridge’s work at the time.

Max Ginsburg - Foreclosure [2011]

Max Ginsburg is a New York artist whose paintings are extremely realistic in form and content. His paintings explore the range of daily human life, concerned as much with life’s ironies and social injustices, as with its many joys. Issues of war and peace, racism and the inhumanity of man have been a major focus in his art. He was also one of America’s foremost illustrators, and he taught for forty years at the School of Visual Arts, the Art Students League and the High School of Art and Design. Ginsburg still teaches workshops and classes in his spare time.
