“Neville Chamberlain #2” – 1938

Click on image for an enlargement.

In the year after Hirshman’s first attempt at caricaturizing British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and his derided endeavor to appease Hitler out of waging war, the artist’s 1938 piece caught the politician’s character more completely. While many caricaturists drew Chamberlain in possession of his ubiquitous umbrella (indeed, he was known as “Umbrella Man” after the title of a popular song at the time), none had used the real thing to portray Chamberlain’s tall and lanky body. Hirshman hung it loosely under a money pouch top hat embossed with his initials and with a pen brim, an allusion to his appeasement by signing the Munich Agreement. Lest the viewer be confused as to whom the umbrella belonged, Hirshman tagged it with a revealing necktie: “Neville Chamberlain, No. 10 Downing Street,” the London address of British prime ministers.

    Aw, this was a very good post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hi, I believe your website might be having web browser compatibility
    problems. Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks
    fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, fantastic site!
