If you're looking for something unconventional with some may be not politely correct collections, you might have a look at this museum. The Cartoon Museum hosts a collection of British cartoons, caricatures, comic strips and animation.
The cartoon art form began with 'caricatura'. A caricature - from the Italian caricare, to load or exaggerate - is a drawing that gives weight to the most striking features of its subject for comic effect. Some great Italian masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Annibale Carracci and Gian Lorenzo Benini, all drew caricatures. These were technical exercises in virtuosity with the aim of defining the essence of a person in a few deft strokes of the pen.
In England, Hogarth created was the first to create a new form of picture-story, 'comic history-painting' a drawing full of 'characters' without exaggerations but copied from nature evoking a "modern moral subjects". It is for this reason that Hogarth is widely regarded as the father of British caricature, in spite of himself, and of the comic strip.
You'll be able to enjoy 250 exhibits from its collection of over 1700 original cartoons and prints.
Britain has a strong tradition of drawings, cartoons and comics and before there were no place to see them. This has changed since 2006 with the opening of the museum. Temporary exhibitions are also held here. Check what's on to discover the program of today.
