Celebrated Welsh cartoonist Ralph Steadman

Currently on offer in the online 20th century and contemporary art sale at Halls Auctioneers are three works by the highly celebrated cartoonist Ralph Steadman, often hailed as one of the most acclaimed illustrators of his generation.

Ralph Steadman was born in 1936 and brought up in Abergele, North Wales. He is best known for his social satirical sketches, political cartoons and caricatures, the famously outspoken artist even depicting American Presidents Donald Trump as a pig wearing a diaper and George Bush as a monkey.

Two prints have been consigned for sale from one of Steadman’s most iconic collections Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, a critical artistic exploration of the American Dream which was a collaboration with author Hunter S. Thompson.
