Caricature was another popular strand in this period. There were exhibitions of the work of Thomas Rowlandson in 1903 (10) and Phil May in 1903 (9), 1908 (98), and 1912 (171). In 1911, the gallery began a lifelong exclusive relationship with Max Beerbohm that led to ten exhibitions, the catalogues for seven of which are in the collection, ending with a memorial exhibition in 1957 (1117).
“Society in Late Victorian Days” was an exhibition of the work of caricaturist George du Maurier held in 1910 (128). It was accompanied by a substantial sixty-page catalogue, one of the few illustrated at this time, that included caricatures and their accompanying text.
