Punch 18


[Change size at whim]
By Kenneth Beauchamp

By visiting the Punch Cartoon site, I was able to identify the artist of the image above.

Yet even his full name did not serve to turn up any online biographical info.

As I mentioned before in this series, the lovely woman in state of undress accompanied by French maid is a core cartoon trope. Or used to be. You don't see it much anymore.

And of course such a trope bumps up right against John Willie territory.
