Searle and Caricature - Responses from Caricaturists Today

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

From 13 October 2015 to 31 January 2016, the Fitzwilliam Museum hosted two exhibitions on caricaturists and visual satire – 'Ronald Searle: "Obsessed with drawing"’ and 'Cradled in Caricature: Visual humour in satirical prints and drawings'.

In response to the exhibition and Searle's place in the history of caricature, three celebrated illustrators and visual satirists today gave their responses to the exhibition and their memories of Searle.
