INTRODUCTION 




OLITICAL CARICATURE, like the newspaper press, is a compara- 
tively recent method for the expression <>l' opinion and criticism, though 
it antedates the modern newspaper which reviews in editorials the 
actions of those in power. Its earliest legitimate forms may he seen 
in the famous folio volume of the caricatures of James Gillray, the English artist, 
who devoted his genius to castigating the social and political evils of his time 
and holding up to ridicule the foibles and habits of the then reigning Hanoverian 
family. Horn in 1757, he early evinced a remarkable artistic ability, bul it was 
not until 1780 that Gillray interested himself in politics chiefly: and. although, 
he ceased to work after 1810, he had achieved, long before that lime, an enormous 
popularity through the terrible power of his scathing and even ruthless wit. His 
coarseness of satiric expression, however, removes him altogether from the cari- 
cature artists of our day. 

In 1830, .John Doyle, the father of Richard Doyle the celebrated artist of 
■'Punch." began to issue his long series of political cartoons, under the signature. 



"II. B." These consisted mainly of satirical portraits of contemporary English 
celebrities of the political world, whose conduct in the affairs of state called for 
censure and animadversion. They made a great sensation at the time, but they 
are not now very highly esteemed either for their historical interest or artistic value. 
Doyle, however, was really the founder of the modern school of caricature art, and 
it is due to his influence and the establishment, in 1841, of the English comic 
weekly, "Punch," that the art was cultivated and exploited in the United States. 

Doyle ditt'cred from (iillray in that he reproduced the exact portraits of the 
people he caricatured, and this method was followed by the American artists who, 
in the late forties of the nineteenth century, initiated their special branch of the 
art. Doyle's drawings were reproduced by lithography, and the American pub- 
lishers employed the same method of printing. Messrs. Currier & Ives of New 
York began to issue their famous lithographic sheets in 1848, the year of Taylor's 
election. These sheets are now very rare. 

The caricatures reproduced in this volume date from 1856, and include the 
most important of those which were issued between that year and 1872. All 
have been photographed direct from the originals in the possession of a collector. 



The earliest deal with the Fillmore campaign, and were drawn by Louis Maurer. 
These are followed by the caricatures of the Buchanan and Douglas campaign, 
the Jackson election, and those inspired by the Abolition Movement in which 
Lincoln played so important a part. The War of the Secession received its share 
of satiric treatment, and a number of the sheets it called forth are given here. 
several depicting personal encounters between Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson 
Davis. The political conditions which were precipitated as the aftermath of the 
Civil War. and especially the rancorous relations which marked the attitude of 
the Republican and Democratic parties towards each other, are pictured here in 
a number of drawings revealing a humor which i>. perhaps, too raw for our more 
cultivated tastes. 

This collection is. unquestionably, of permanent historical value and of more 
than passing interest. Our ancestors had a rough and ready way with them of 
expressing their likes and dislikes, especially in the heal of electoral campaigns; 
but they said what they honestly thought; and il is this sincerity of expression 
which so appeals to us. despite its lack of artistic finish and even crude vulgarity. 
As draughtsmen, the artists of these caricatures were no! of the most accomplished 



order, but there is no mistaking their intention, nor are we left in any doubt as 
to the identities of the individuals satirized, nor the meaning of the moral they 
desired to convey. 

To avoid any misapprehension as to either one or the other, they printed the 
names below the portraits, and used loops, inscribed with the words of the speakers, 
and issuing from their mouths. Modern art has improved on this naive and 
direct method; but if it has gained in power of suggestion, it does not evince a 
more vigorous power of trenchant criticism, nor does it display the almost terri- 
ble freedom of satiric humor which is the interesting characteristic of early 
American caricature art. 

With the advent of the illustrated newspaper and the comic weekly, the day 
of the lithographed sheets was over. The former took the place of the latter, 
and the work achieved by Thomas Nast and Joseph Keppler remains today 
among the distinguished achievements in the sphere of pictorial satire. None 
the less, however, the cartoons of the earlier period will continue to hold their 
interest and value both to the historian and the student of the social develop- 
iiHiil of the United States.
