Buy Gerald Scarfe Art

From the Livingston Ledger:

An image of the Duke of Cambridge leap-frogging over his father the Prince of Wales [#39] is among the satirical Gerald Scarfe cartoons going on sale.

The unpublished image, which has a £3,000 to £5,000 estimate, is among a catalogue of cartoons to be sold by Sotheby’s auctioneers in central London on April 5.

A drawing, called A Good Place To Hang Out, [#13] shows current Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson lurking outside No 10 Downing Street. It could fetch £5,000 to 7,000.

Sotheby’s believes the star lot among the 130 sale drawings is one of former prime minister Sir Winston Churchill showing the elderly statesman’s final appearance in the House of Commons in 1964 [#134]. It has a £100,000 to £150,000 estimate.

Scarfe had been commissioned by The Times to record the occasion, but his image was thought too controversial to publish.
