"The Inking Woman" Exhibition at the Cartoon Museum

From Cartoon Museum.

An exhibition of British women cartoon and comic artists will take place at the Cartoon Museum in London.

This exhibition of over 80 diverse artists follows the evolution of British women artists as satirists, humorists and storytellers. Many combine all three talents and have produced work in a variety of forms. In recent years the rise of small press and the graphic novel has seen an increasing number of women appear in print.

Here is just a sample of some of the artists included in the exhibition:

  • Mary Darly [fl. 1760-1781] print seller, artist and author of Principles of Caricatura (1762) the first book on the art of caricature.
    Marie Duval's work first appeared in cheap British penny papers & comics in 1860s-80s
  • Marie Duval an early artist in the nineteenth century magazine Judy.
  • Suffragette and early twentieth century postcard artists - The Suffragette Atelier and Mabel Lucie Attwell
  • Cartoonists drawing for mainstream publications such as Punch and Private Eye - Anton, Sally Artz, Grizelda, Kathryn Lamb, Annie Tempest
  • Political and joke cartoonists such - Jacky Fleming, Angela Martin, Viv Quillin
  • Strip cartoonists and caricaturists - Ros Asquith, Kate Charlesworth, Cath Jackson, Simone Lia
  • Comic artists and graphic novelists - Rachael Ball, Karrie Fransman, Posy Simmonds and Una
