  • Medium: pen and ink drawings (over 260) plus printers' proofs (20+)
  • Contains over 260 pen and ink drawings and more than printers’ proofs and off-cuts, various dimensions. A large and most interesting collection of mainly political cartoons by an un-identified artist who signed himself as Shemus. Deals with issues of partition, ‘The Irish Question’, strikes, unemployment, the Black and Tans and internment among many others. Includes caricatures of such figures as Lloyd George, Edward Carson, Erskine Childers, Eamon de Valera, Lord Birkenhead, Winston Churchill, General Richard Mulcahy, Captain William Redmond, and the occasional literary personality such as Lynn Doyle. Included are also 23 pen and ink drawings signed by ‘Cormac’, which appears to be another pseudonym for ‘Shemus’. This smaller collection is mostly of local Dublin interest with many based on racing at Punchestown, Phoenix Park and so on. The majority of all drawings in the archive are black and white with blue crayon; there are also three fully coloured watercolour cartoons and approximately 25 lithographic prints and magazine clippings of Shemus cartoons.
