Buy British Political Cartoon - Original mid-20th-century lithograph print
is on back order
An original mid-20th-century lithograph print, Buy British Political Cartoon.
A very striking and unusual piece of satirical artwork, satirising British economic depression. The invocation to "Buy British" possibly relates to Robert Maxwell's "Buy British" campaign of 1968, encouraging the public to buy from British producers, off the back of Harold Wilson's patriotic "I'm backing Britain" campaign aimed at boosting the British economy. On paper laid down on thin board.
There is a fine vertical tear extending into the image at the centre of the upper and lower edges.
31cm x 49.3cm.
