John Leech (1817-1864)

Cartoonist and caricaturist educated at Charterhouse, and then studied medicine, but turned to art. From 1841 he contributed hundreds of sketches of middle-class life and political cartoons to Punch, as well as to the Illustrated London News (1856). Over the next twenty-three years Punch Magazine published 3,000 of Leech's drawings and 600 cartoons.
