English Caricatures

While the Dulwich Picture Gallery is celebrating the Best of British (next post down), the Hamburger Kunsthalle - nothing to do with fast food - is celebrating the golden era of English cartoons: The Arena of Ridicule, English Caricatures 1780–1830 (title link). Thomas Rowlandson's A Hitt at Backgammon (sic) from 1810 is a striking example. If you happen to be in Hamburg, you'll find it in the Gallery of Master Drawings until 27 September.
