Cartoon exhibition: A Peep into Clubland

“Very well meant” by H. M. Bateman

A Peep into Clubland: Cartoons from Private London Clubs is the title of an exhibition which runs from February 18 to May 3 at the Cartoon Museum in London.

It is billed as a rare chance to see more than a hundred works from the Athenaeum, Annabel’s, the Garrick, the MCC, Harry’s Bar, the Reform Club, the Sketch Club, Chelsea Arts Club and others.

London’s Private Clubs hold many cartoons, caricatures and prints on a wide range of subjects. They may delight and amuse their members, but they are inaccessible to everyone else, so this show offers the wider public a rare chance to enjoy them.

The show features cartoons by H. M. Bateman (above), Peter Arno, Heath Robinson, Gillray, Thomas Rowlandson, Pont and many more.

The Cartoon Museum, at 35 Little Russel Street, near the British Museum, is open Tuesday-Saturday 10.30am – 5.30pm and Sunday 12pm-5.30pm. Ticket prices: adults £4, concessions £3, students and under-18s free.
