Ralph Idris Steadman Sold at Auction Prices

Caricaturist, Cartoonist, Photographer, Illustrator, b. 1936 -

Ralph Steadman is known for his work in illustrations, design, and writing. Born in 1936, the British artist attended the London College of Printing where he began his long career as a cartoonist. His work has a satirical bent that was not appreciated at first. However, cult-status collections, such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which he created to complement the dark-humored writings of Hunter S. Thompson, brought him into the limelight.

Steadman drawings represent creativity and a unique sense of artistry. He is most famous for his work in books like Animal Farm and Alice in Wonderland. Ralph Steadman's prints and originals for sale are highly prized by collectors world-wide. His work is so well-regarded that he was inducted into the Society of Illustrators' Hall of Fame in 2017. Make sure the next print you own is extra special by buying rare signed lithographs drawings for sale online and at auction.
