Biography:

Edward M. Grosse

Colonial Sydney newspaper illustrator and caricaturist for Town and Country Journal . He was chief artist on Town and Country in 1889. In 1903 George Taylor wrote: “Grosse on rare occasions wanders into the realms of caricature with notable success. Few of our artists possess such exquisite feeling for gradations and contrasts in black and white. His absolute command of the pen or brush can be imagined when it is mentioned that not only is he a black and white artist of exceptional excellence, but he has no superior in the world as a scientific draftsman – one, for instance, who can depict with microscopic exactness the gradations in tone on the antennae of the Rolyateog Australiensis .”
