James Gillray (1756–1815) was Georgian Britain’s funniest, most inventive and most celebrated graphic satirist.
His work transcends his own time and has continued to influence his successors of the modern age, from David Low to Martin Rowson.
Tim Clayton, author of 2022’s definitive biography of James Gillray, brings the master satirist to life in an astonishing, colourful and at times salacious exhibition, James Gillray: Characters in Caricature.
This lively and daring exhibition examines how Gillray exposed the most notorious scandals of his time by focusing on the artist’s principal characters – household names to which he returned to again and again, from Emma Hamilton to the Emperor Napoleon.View Attraction
