Satirical City: An exhibition of London Cartoons by Martin Rowson

Thursday 19 June – Saturday 12 July 2014

Featuring almost 120 London cartoons and a mural by Martin Rowson, this exhibition delves into London's recent history. Filled with humour and poignancy, the thought-provoking cartoons capture some of the historical moments, Mayor of London mishaps and big issues to affect the capital over the last 15 years. Inspired by the original master of political caricature and cartoon, William Hogarth (1697-1764), Martin Rowson skillfully conveys some of London’s complex issues in one striking image.  All cartoons were commissioned by by London Communications Agency (LCA), an award winning specialist consultancy focusing on London and London issues, with this exhibition brought together to celebrate the company's 15th anniversary.
