Biography   Graham Laidler


Graham Laidler, known as Pont after the Pontifex Maximus in Rome, lived from 1908 to 1940. Graham was a talented artist educated at the London School of Architecture. Illness prevented him from continuing in an office career, and in 1932 he became a professional cartoonist, quickly reaching an exclusive agreement with Punch. His most famous series, represented in this sale, are The British Character and Wartime Weaknesses, both gently satirizing the idiosyncrasies of British life at peace and war. He completed four hundred cartoons before his death from poliomyelitis at 32, and by the end of his life had developed a style still recognizable today in the editorial cartoon.
