VANITY FAIR CARICATURES: AN INTRODUCTION
by Alan Cornett
Statesmen and scientists, ministers and musicians, authors and artists, there was hardly a human pursuit without a representative in the caricatures of the late Victorian political and society magazine Vanity Fair. From its founding by Thomas Gibson Bowles in January 1869 until its demise at the dawn of the Great War, Vanity Fair’s forty-five year run produced more than two thousand lithographic illustrations.
Although dozens of artists produced caricatures for Vanity Fair, two stand above the rest.
