Bateman Reviews

Many who use the phrase "like a Bateman cartoon" to describe a social faux pas are too young to remember the heyday of the artist himself. Despite this, the term remains in regular usage 30 years after Henry Mayo Bateman died, 60 years after he gave up cartooning to concentrate on painting and 90 years after he began his famous 'The Man Who.' series of drawings. These depicted people committing awful gaffes - 'The Boy Who Breathed on the Glass at the British Museum' being among the most famous. Over his 50-year career as a cartoonist for magazines like Punch and Tatler, he was, however, responsible for a wider range of work than is now realised, and this welcome collection gathers together some of the best of Bateman's art, well-known and more obscure.
