Heroes and Villains Publication


Heroes and Villains is a unique collaboration between the caricaturist Gerald Scarfe and the National Portrait Gallery. Images of well-known figures, selected from the National Portrait Gallery's collections, are juxtaposed with caricatures of the sitters by Scarfe.

Joanna Lumley, Ian Rankin, Simon Schama, Stephen Bayley, Mo Mowlam and Melvyn Bragg are just a few of the public figures who argue their views for and against subjects as wide ranging as Henry VIII, Oswald Mosley, Virginia Woolf, the Beatles and Margaret Thatcher.
