The Funny Little Man | Roy Newby | Comic Artists | 1920s Artists


  • Phoenix Viewing
    A selection of Roy Newby's images will be on show at the Phoenix Theatre & Studio, Phoenix Place, North Street, Lewes, BN7 2PQ, East Sussex. The exhibition starts on Friday November 25th (5.00 pm - 9.00 pm), goes on through Saturday November 26th (2.00 pm - 7.00 pm) and ends on Sunday November 27th (11.00 am - 4.00 pm). Entry is free.  For this exhibition, we've selected images which speak of the second half of the twentieth century in Roy Newby's work as an illustrator for the popular printed media. However, we've balanced these with others from the more private visual world he inhabited as a painter. Many images are wonderful time-capsules, bringing to the second decade of our own century a sudden, vivid recollection of the last. Others are timeless.
