James Gillray
James Gillray
James Gillray
(13 August 1756[1] or 1757[2] – 1 June 1815) was a British caricaturist and printmaker famous for his etched political and social satires, mainly published between 1792 and 1810. Gillray has been called "the father of the political cartoon", with his works satirizing George III, prime ministers and generals.[3] Regarded as being one of the two most influential cartoonists, the other being William Hogarth, Gillray's wit and humour, knowledge of life, fertility of resource, keen sense of the ludicrous, and beauty of execution, at once gave him the first place among caricaturists.[3][4]Contents1 Early life 2 Adult life 3 The art of caricature 4 Famous editions 5 Collecting 6 Gallery 7 Influence 8 References 9 Further reading9.1 Primary sources10 External linksEarly life[edit] He was born in Chelsea, London

Damien Hirst
Damien Steven Hirst (/hɜːrst/; born 7 June 1965) is an English artist, entrepreneur, and art collector.[1] He is one of the Young British Artists (YBAs), who dominated the art scene in the UK during the 1990s.[2][3] He is reportedly the United Kingdom's richest living artist, with his wealth valued at £215M in the 2010 Sunday Times Rich List.[4][5] During the 1990s his career was closely linked with the collector Charles Saatchi, but increasing frictions came to a head in 2003 and the relationship ended.[6] Death is a central theme in Hirst's works.[7][8] He became famous for a series of artworks in which dead animals (including a shark, a sheep and a cow) are preserved—sometimes having been dissected—in formaldehyde. The best known of these was The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, a 14-foot (4.3 m) tiger shark immersed in formaldehyde in a clear display case
