THIS EXHIBITION IS ON DISPLAY AT MOTTISFONT, NEAR ROMSEY, HAMPSHIRE, SO51 0LP
The best cartoons are funny, thought-provoking and beautifully drawn. This exhibition will showcase the many strengths of contemporary British cartooning in the context of its distinguished history. It will demonstrate a wide range of social and political preoccupations, artistic styles, and – of course – humour, from the satirical to the side-splitting. Today’s most popular and significant practitioners will be well-represented, including Peter Brookes of The Times, Matt of the Telegraph and Ed McLachlan and Mike Williams of The Oldie and Private Eye. They will be set alongside the most timeless of past masters, including John Tenniel, George Du Maurier, William Heath Robinson, H M Bateman, David Low, Ronald Searle, John Glashan and Larry.
