Description:

Colin Blythe (1879-1917)  also known as Charlie Blythe, was a professional cricketer who played for Kent County Cricket Club and the England cricket team. He was a left-arm orthodox spin bowler and is regarded as one of the finest bowlers of the period between 1900 and 1914 – sometimes referred to as the Golden Age of cricket. He was named as one of Wisden’s five Cricketers of the Year in 1904 and played in 19 Test matches for England.

From the original issue of Vanity Fair, famous for it’s cartoons of people of the day.

Artist:

Leslie Matthew Ward (1851-1922)

Ward was a British portrait artist and caricaturist who over four decades painted 1,325 portraits which were regularly published by Vanity Fair under their pseudonyms.

Such was his influence in the genre that all Vanity Fair caricatures are sometimes referred to as “Spy Cartoons” regardless of who the artist actually was. Early portraits, almost always full-length (judges at the bench being the main exception), had a stronger element of caricature and usually distorted the proportions of the body, with a very large head and upper body supported on much smaller lower parts. Later, as he became socially accepted in the society in which he moved to gain access to his subjects, and not wishing to cause offence, his style developed into what he called ‘characteristic portraits’, being less of a caricature and more of an actual portrait of the subject, using realistic body proportions.
