Art Appreciation

Here are two works based on the same theme:
This one is described as "edgy and insightful commentary on the administration".
This one was described as "hateful and racist, lacking only the noose".

I'm sure someone who has studied art appreciation at, say, Harvard, could tell you instantly what it is that differentiates the two.

Um, I studied at Everly Community High School. The first depiction focuses on the character of the face.

The tone of the second piece is set by the perfectly applied lipstick, instead.
