Antique Vanity Fair Chromolitho Print Joseph Cowen MP British Politics 1872


Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful chromolitho print issued by Vanity Fair in 1872, original, not a reproduction - it is accompanied by a separate text page that describes the subject of the caricature. Vanity Fair magazine published coloured caricatures of famous figures in British society from 1869 until 1914. The caricatures were primarily by artists Spy and Ape but also by others. This one is of Joseph Cowen, a British politician from Newcastle-on-Tyne, a self proclaimed Radical Reformer - he certainly has a rather determined look to him. The print measures 9 1/8 by 14 while the image area measures 7 1/2 by 12 1/8. It is in very clean condition, and will make a a fun display piece when framed. The print will be delivered rolled in a box - should you require it flat, please let me know, but delivery uncharges may be necessary. Wonderful print - interesting caricature!
