Private Eye Annual: Harold MacMillan

Gerald Scarfe » Shop » Prints » Politics » Private Eye Annual: Harold MacMillan

This illustration was originally published inside an issue of Private Eye magazine in 1963. It marked the beginning of an era. It depicted the then Prime Minister, Harold MacMillan perched on an Arne Jacobson chair, naked and parodied the iconic photograph of Christine Keeler during the Profumo scandal. Cartooning of this audacity opened the way to others and liberated many who had not dared to go this far before. The drawing was reproduced on cover of the Private Eye Annual later that year and the Annual was then banned from four of Britain's biggest book sellers including W.H. Smith. Size of print: 21cm x 29cm. Hand signed by Gerald Scarfe.
