William Holbrook Beard (1825-1900) is known for his caricatures and for humorously anthropomorphized animals. Through his inventiveness and originality, he satirized businessmen, scientists, politicians and other professionals. With marksmanship as accurate as it is funny, Beard’s satirical paintings are equally witty and thought-provoking. Despite his lack of formal art training, the self-taught Beard’s work was greatly en vogue.
