Vanity Fair Caricature.
Title: Politicians - 'Ex-official'. Sir Matthew White Ridley.
Artist: Carlo Pellegrini
Carlo Pellegrini was an artist who served from 1869 to 1889 as a caricaturist for Vanity Fair Magazine, magazine, a leading journal of London society. A full-page, colour lithograph of a contemporary celebrity or dignitary appeared in most issues. Subjects included artists, athletes, royalty, statesmen, scientists, authors, actors, soldiers, religious personalities, business people and scholars. More than two thousand of these images appeared, and they are considered the chief cultural legacy of the magazine, forming a pictorial record of the period.
