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.

  1. Some fine gags here. The response from members was very good. Anybody spotting a publisher at the Private View gets a prize.

  2. Best of luck to all involved in what looks to be a suitably cheeky exhibition.

  3. The PV was hot and v crowded, but the cartoons were very well received.
