With a rich selection of illustrations from the extensive and largely unpublished collection of satirical and caricature images in the Museum of London, The Art of Satire tells the story of visual satire in London, a city in which caricature flourished like no other. After exploring the significance of London as a subject and as the centre of production, the book, chronologically surveys satirical images of London life, from Hogarth's London to the age of Victoria considering the eclectic and vibrant tradition that continues into the twentieth century. The book encompasses new research and uses historical and literary sources to place the satire of London in the wider context of English satire as a whole.
