From ‘Red’ Ellen to Oswald Mosley

Portraits of Inter-War Politicians by Edmund Kapp

The 2015 General Election might one day be regarded as one of the most unpredictable and intriguing of this century.

But politics a hundred years ago was no less fascinating – and the politicians of the day arguably a good deal more colourful. This display features portrait drawings and caricatures by Edmund Kapp of some of the outstanding political figures of the inter-war period. These include characters as diverse of Sir Oswald Mosley, Sir Winston Churchill and ‘Red Ellen’ Wilkinson, the socialist MP for Jarrow.
