Description
Size: Frame 49 x 37.5 cm, drawing inside mount 17.5 x 24 cm (7 x 9.5 inches). Condition: Drawing in excellent condition, used mount and vintage frame with gilt slip also very good with a few minor scuffs. This is an excellent example of work by well known artist who from 1898 to 1935 contributed to many publications including Chums, Punch, The Tatler and Strand. The cartoon is drawn in charcoal and coloured with wash or watercolour. It is signed bottom right by the artist. We assume the date to be around the time of the First World War, and the character depicted to represent a Quaker. Most Quakers opposed the War although a few signed up and many more joined relief forces or campaigned at home. Starr Wood was a self taught artist who started out in work as a chartered account and debt collector, but turned to drawing for a living, sometime calling himself The Snark. In 1898 he founded his own quarterly, the Windmill, and in 1910 The Snark's Annual. A sought after item well presented for immediate display. From the collection of Terry Shelbourne, a Lincolnshire artist and caricaturist.
