Looking Backwards: The Politics and Art of Judge Magazine

Exhibition Website

Nov 5 2016 - Dec 30 2016

Political cartoons from the 19th century both reflected and influenced the sentiments of voters. Judge magazine was purchased by William J. Arkell on December 4, 1885 with the plan of using the publication to promote Republican causes and politicians. Before signing this purchase agreement Arkell recruited Bernhard Gillam and Eugene Zimmerman away from the more Democratic-leaning Puck magazine.
