About

Celebrate the all-time great caricaturist’s work and his legacy through two centuries of cartoons and prints with Gillray's Ghost at the Cartoon Museum.

Regarded as the father of political cartoons, the 18th century caricaturist James Gillray continues to influence artists to this day. As much humorous as they were politically potent, his skilful and imaginative creations fearlessly caricatured and mocked the great, the good and the not-so-good of the day.

Marking 200 years since Gillray’s death, the exhibition features some of the artist’s most influential drawings, exhibited alongside the works of many high-profile satirical cartoonists influenced by Gillray, including Nicholas Garland, Peter Brookes, Leslie Illingworth and Chris Duggan.
