James Gillray: Caricaturist

For those of you interested in eighteenth-century caricature and particularly James Gillray, there is a new online resource: James Gillray: Caricaturist. The site includes a chronological catalogue of Gillray’s known prints, a list of major museums and archives where his work can be seen, information about him and his methods and techniques, and links to short biographical sketches of some of the people he caricatured.

The work of Jim Sherry, who has written on the modes of caricature as well as the humor of Thomas Rowlandson, the site continues to grow as Jim adds commentaries on individual Gillray prints (48 so far).
