Fox Hunter Spy Print Tote Bag | Mr Hargreaves
This lovely tote bag features a vintage “Spy” Print Caricature of Mr. Hargreaves, Fox Hunter, from Vanity Fair on June 11, 1887.
“A full-page, color lithograph of a contemporary celebrity or dignitary appeared in most issues, and it is for these caricatures that Vanity Fair is best known then and today. Subjects included artists, athletes, royalty, statesmen, scientists, authors, actors, soldiers, religious personalities, business people and scholars. More than two thousand of these images appeared, and they are considered the chief cultural legacy of the magazine, forming a pictorial record of the period. They were produced by an international group of artists, including Max Beerbohm, Sir Leslie Ward (who signed his work “Spy” and “Drawl”), the Italians Carlo Pellegrini (“Singe” and “Ape”), Melchiorre Delfico (“Delfico”), Liborio Prosperi (“Lib”), the Florentine artist and critic Adriano Cecioni, the French artist James Tissot (Coïdé), and the American Thomas Nast.”
