Caricature Self-Portrait "Little Breeches"
- N.d., circa 1900. The pen and ink, lightly tinted, drawing is 20 by 15 cm. It is an amusing self-portrait, all big blocky head, boots, and suspenders suspended over the artist's pate. Not really characteristic of this versatile artist's work, yet a splendid work of great economy and humor, somewhat in the vein of Edward Lear. Ford is best remembered today for illustrating the dozen Andrew Lang colored fairy book series, and next for illustrating works by Scott, Kipling and many others. He also did free-standing painting, and some of his work belongs now to museum collections. Matted.
