In the 18th and 19th centuries artists like William Hogarth, James Gillray and George Cruikshank created political and social satire, often with blatant rudeness, to ridicule the high and mighty and to highlight social issues. In a highly-illustrated talk award-winning political cartoonist Martin Rowson (the Guardian etc) discusses their work and shows how they have inspired his own scathing and often extremely graphic work.

In a full-page editorial in 2017, in response to one of his Guardian cartoons, the Daily Mail denounced him and his work as “disgusting, deranged … sick and offensive”. Not for the faint-hearted!
