Description: This caricature of Winston Churchill's father, Lord Randolph Churchill, is an original vintage print (14 1/2 x 9 inches), as published in Vanity Fair magazine on July 10 1880. Captioned "The Younger Son" [of the Duke of Marlborough], it was drawn by Leslie Ward, who signed himself "Spy." Twenty years later, Ward would famously draw the first caricature of young Winston Churchill to be published in Vanity Fair. From 1868 to 1914, Vanity Fair published over 2,300 lithographic caricatures of the dominant figures in British society; politicians, royalty, peers, bishops and socialites, as well as lions of the arts, science, and sport, often to illustrate an ongoing series of profiles entitled "Men of the Day" (which was the source of this particular caricature). The print has been very handsomely overmatted in pale green and framed in black lacquer (13 1/2 x 19 inches overall).
