Description:

“The design for the ‘A trip to Chinatown’ musical comedy, was an asymmetrically placed silhouette, consisting of a combination of light and dark tones against a middle-toned orange. The use of scissors (in the printing) is more obvious in the outline of the chinaman figure than it is in the figure of Hamlet (see PL. 107)…The influence of Japanese prints on Pryde and Nicholson can be seen mainly in the pure, flat colours of the design. The rectangular panel in the upper right corner recalls similar panels in Japanese woodcuts… A chocolate-coloured border bearing the title of the musical comedy was added to the Beggarstaff design (the inner panel) by the printer after the design left the artists’ studio” (Beggarstaff, p.38)
