Larry (Terence Parkes) was known as the 'cartoonist's cartoonist'. Highly respected by his peers for his consistently funny cartoons, he will long be remembered for his parodies of famous works of art, from Rodin's sculptures to Rembrandt and van Gogh.
As a keen football fan and a loyal follower of his beloved Aston Villa, Larry frequently turned to the beautiful game as a source of inspiration. In 1998 and in 2002, Larry held exhibitions at Chris Beetles Gallery celebrating the World Cups held in France and Japan/South Korea respectively. Now, 15 years after Larry's death, as World Cup fever once again strikes the country, we remember some of Larry's finest footballing cartoons, alongside a number of examples by gallery favourites Matt, Ed McLachlan and Mike Williams.
