Heroes and Villains: Scarfe at the National Portrait Gallery

£9.99

Product description

"Heroes and Villains" is a unique collaboration with the caricaturist Gerald Scarfe. In the book, portraits of well-known figures, selected from the National Portrait Gallery's collections, are quirkily juxtaposed with caricatures that depict their villainous side. Gerald Scarfe, Britain's best-known caricaturist, provides these artful, glib distortions, many of which have been specially commissioned. They reveal the wit and vision of an exceptional draughtsman at work. Joanna Lumley, Sir Peter Hall and Melvyn Bragg are just a few of the people who argue their views for and against, on subjects as wide ranging as Henry VIII, Oswald Mosley, Virginia Woolf, Princess Diana and David and Victoria Beckham.

Little wear on dust jacket and tear in top corner.
A few marks on the front cover.
