"David Low Censored" Exhibition

From the Political Cartoon Gallery.

An exhibition of original unpublished cartoons by the greatest cartoonist of the 20th Century, Sir David Low

These are cartoons the Evening Standard felt were either too strong or in too bad taste to publish. 

Some of these directly upset Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini as well as Winston Churchill. 

David Low was the first cartoonists to be given a contract which gave him a completely free hand as a political cartoonist but did the proprietor he worked for honour that agreement? 

The exhibition will be accompanied by the publication of a fully illustrated book on the subject.
