To coincide with the opening of the Royal Academy’s annual Summer Exhibition, twenty seven of Britain’s finest cartoonists have rallied to provide a satirical take on the history of art. With over seventy five original works for sale, the show is a celebration of history’s masterpieces, and an antidote to the neon, taxidermy and bed linen of contemporary art’s more notorious movements.
