Punch and Judy Paintings

Here are some paintings depicting Punch and Judy which are in collections all over the country. They are included in a fantastic new archive which is trying to catalogue paintings owned by the state and local authorities together with those held in charitable trusts.
I love the last two.
Enjoy

Good collection Dan. The genre is really quite extensive. Certainly a popular subject right up to the present day it seems.
I was very interested in the painting by Sarah Louisa Kilpack. I think I will add this one to my own collection.
It would be nice if someone were to organise an exhibition of paintings, photographs, puppets and artefacts on this topic. There are certainly some terrific examples to be included.
It has been my experience that I am always true from my point of view, and am often wrong from the point of view of my honest critics. I know that we are both right from our respective points of view. - Gandhi (Having a bob each way.)

Yes, I love the Churchill one. I was also taken with the Silver Jubilee montage. The Llandudno Codman one, while looking crude, is actually tremendously well observed.
It's good to squawk!
