Art Appreciation 2022 - Well done, sir: the celebratory and commemorative function of cartoons in the Victorian age - online

Art Appreciation 2022 - Pomp and Ceremony

14 September 2022 - 16 December 2022 -
Looking back at the heyday of cartooning – the Victorian Age – we unpack some of the key ways in which cartoonists heralded royal weddings, great moments, and imperial adventure. Despite the pretty venomous work by cartoonists during the recent federal election, cartoons themselves haven’t aways been about attack. In this lecture we discover how in the past cartoons often served a more commemorative or even celebratory role for an appreciative readership.

Associate Professor Richard Scully is Associate Professor in Moder History at the UNE. He is the author of Eminent Victorian Cartoonists (London, 2018), and British Images of Germany: Admiration, Antagonism & Ambivalence (Basingstoke, 2012)
