BENTLEY, Nicolas.

Original artwork and prints by Nicolas Bentley.

Nicolas Clerihew Bentley was a British author and illustrator, best known for his humorous artworks in both books and magazines in the 1930s and 1940s. He is perhaps most famous for his illustration of the second edition Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, the first being quickly withdrawn to allow for Bentley’s illustrated version.

    Cowboy's Dinner

    A caricature cowboy eats a caricature cowboy dinner watching a caricature cowboy film. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications.
