Help me with some paintings...





ciureanuc
When I was a kid, I had at home a "Gulliver" book.
Quite a large format (A4 or larger), with many illustrations: a page of illustration on every 2-3 pages of text.
I tried to find it on the antiques book stores... no chance.
Today I found some similar drawings with the ones appeared on that book (this paint is taken from a collection of illustrations).
I know this forum is international - almost zero probabilities to find that book/illustrations here but if this painting ring a bell to you, can you help me with more information about painters who draw like this?

Thanks!

If I were as passionate as you to find the paintings, I would book myself on a ticket to London, get the tube to Leicester Square or nearabouts and check out all the second hand and antique book stores in that area. I would do this after I have checked up everywhere on the Internet, and put up notices in discussion groups that specialize in antique books.

sorry no idea, seems like a caricature though if that helps and there's a name at the bottom of the painting, maybe he's the painter. Good luck with your search though!

Sorry; I can't help much on this topic. But if you search "caricature" on google images, there are many images similar to the one you posted:
