Caricature of the Author Philip James Bailey (1816-1902)
- N.d., circa 1900. The pen and ink ink drawing is 20 by 11.5 cm. Depicted is Philip James Bailey, who is carrying under his arms his 1839 magnum opus, the very long poem, "Festus", admired by Tennyson and other leading poets of the day, and supposedly an influence on James Joyce. The work was Bailey's only success, and he continued to add to it during his long life following its initial appearance. It is this pattern of accretions which Ford would appear to be lampooning in this caricature. 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.
