John Heartfield - Adolf, the superman: Swallow gold and spouts rubbish, 1932. Photolithograph 
Excerpt from Art Blarts’ review: 

John Heartfield’s photomontages expose hidden agendas in German politics and economics of the 1920s and 30s. This image was published six months before the National Socialist Party came to power, and shows Hitler with a spine made of coins and his stomach filled with gold.  The caption says that he ‘swallows gold’, alluding to generous funding by right-wing industrialists, and ‘spouts rubbish’.
