The Northern Reader


Portrait of a retired judge. Commissioned by his son, who requested it in the style of Leslie Ward’s ‘SPY’ cartoons to sit alongside his father’s existing collection of Vanity Fair prints.


These are gentle caricatures, nothing too extreme. As Leslie Ward (Spy) said: ‘If I could sum up the art in a sentence, it would be that caricature should be a comic impression with a kindly touch, and always devoid of vulgarity’.
