About this Item

Sheet size: 152 × 177 mm. Stamped for publication in the Sunday Telegraph books section. Pen and ink on wove paper. A zookeeper grins as Chi-Chi the panda watches a piece of toast inscribed "An-An's a Man for a' That!" fly up from the toaster. Chi-Chi was the star attraction of London Zoo; she was greatly pampered, and often indulged with human food by visitors. In 1966 her fruitless liaison with Moscow Zoo's An-An made front page news. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.
