STARR WOOD (1870-1944) ORIGINAL PENCIL, PEN, BLACK INK CARTOON, unsigned, 12.5 x 10, on heavy card stock, by 19th-early 20th century British Punch cartoonist. This cartoon shows a distraught woman talking with her male companion. Starr Wood's handwritten caption (the publisher would later set it in type) reads: “What’s the matter, dear, don’t you love me any more?” “You told me you were poor.” “Well, I told you the truth.” “Yes, but I thought you were only testing my love.” There are a few publisher/printer notations in pencil, some small stains, general age toning, marginal pin holes, otherwise in fine condition.
STARR WOOD turned freelance cartoonist after his first drawing was published in 1892. In addition to his Punch cartoons he contributed to several other British publications, including: Chums, Fun, Judy, Chips, Parade, John Bull, Bystander, Humorist, Passing Show, Tatler and Strand from 1898-1938.
