caricature - noun

A picture or depiction that ludicrously exaggerates the features or defects of persons or things.

The most perfect caricature is that which, on a small surface, with the simplest means, most accurately exaggerates, to the highest point, the peculiarities of a human being, at his most characteristic moment in the most beautiful manner.

—Max Beerbohm “The Spirit of Caricature” A Variety of Things (1928)
