History of the Beaverbrook Foundation

Political Cartoons

The Beaverbrook Foundation has a collection of over 8,000 historic cartoons by David Low, Victor Weisz (‘Vicky’), Michael Cummings and Sidney Stube. This collection is widely regarded as one of the most important collections of 20th Century British political cartoons.

Selections from the collection are exhibited periodically, and are sometimes made available to third party exhibitions. Exhibitions have included events at the Houses of Parliament and the Cartoon Museum.

The Foundation is currently undergoing a project to update the digital records of the cartoon collection, which will be available in due course.
