Artist:

Lance Thackeray RBA (1869–1916)

Thackeray was an English illustrator, known especially for his humorous comic sporting prints of billiards and golf. He was born in Darlington to Thomas Thackeray and Selina Neish. He was a founding member of the London Sketch Club. When he was over 30 he spent some winters in Egypt and produced humorous sketches which he collected in The Light Side of Egypt (1908).  Thackeray drew the designs for over 950 postcards, prints and made a great number of illustrations for the humorous Press in England. At the beginning of World War I, despite being over 40, he volunteered for the Artists Rifles. He died in Brighton after a long illness.
