Broadsides' is an exhibition that explores the history of the Royal Navy in the late-18th to early-19th centuries, through the acerbic wit of the caricature of the time. This was a period of intense naval activity which included the Seven Years War, the American War of Independence, and the wars against Revolutionary and Napoleonic France. A new and popular form of graphic satire also emerged, as caricature developed into a highly sophisticated art form. Contemporary political and naval events were dissected with biting humour and a journalistic concern for current affairs.
