CHESTERTON, Gilbert Keith (1874-1936). Poet, novelist & critic.
Reproduction of the caricature of Chesterton by Edmond X. Kapp, 250 x 172 mm. (ca 10 x 6½ inches), signed in ink by Chesterton in the lower margin. Some wear at the edges but with wide margins.
Kapp published at least two books of portrait reproductions and the present example comes from Personalities: Twenty-Four Drawings (1920), where it is number 6, captioned 'as he would have us think him'. The reverse bears an ink signature of Augustus John, who appears as number 7 in that volume (picture not here present).
