Day 9

A Remedy for Christmas Overindulgence  - take a trip to the Fitzwilliam's 'Cradled in Caricature: Visual humour in satirical prints and drawings'

The exhibition looks at the methods used by British artists from James Gillray to Glen Baxter to amuse and entertain, ranging from the simple exaggeration of facial features and burlesque comedy, to more complicated word-play and ironic literary allusions. Often the intention was to raise a laugh, but in some cases humour is merged with satire to convey a more serious message or moral lesson on the dangers of excess. Works in the show are drawn from the Fitzwilliam’s collection with key loans from Andrew Edmunds and Benjamin Lemer.
