Original artwork and prints created by (or related to) caricaturist, author and artist Max Beerbohm. The items in this collection were a donation from the estate of UCLA Professor Majl Ewing.
Max Beerbohm was born Henry Maximilian Beerbohm on August 24, 1872, the youngest son of Julius and Eliza Beerbohm. His older half-brother was the actor and theater manager Herbert Beerbohm Tree. "Max" (as he was always known) was educated at Charterhouse and Merton College, Oxford, where he met some of his dearest and most influential friends, including William Rothenberg, Oscar Wilde, and Aubrey Beardsley, among others. He left Oxford in 1894 without a degree and around the same time, gained prominence as an essayist and caricaturist. From 1898 to 1910, he was also the drama critic for the Saturday Review. In 1910, he married American actress Florence Kahn and moved with her to Rapallo, Italy, where they would live the rest of their lives (with travels home to Britain during both World Wars and for their respective work). Beerbohm died in 1956.
