Artist and illustrator Edward Tennyson Reed (1860-1933) was a Punch Magazine contributor from 1889 until his death, despite retiring as parliamentary caricaturist in 1912. He reintroduced something of the grotesque to the Punch profile and had a deft hand at sketching facial attributes amidst often absurd scenes.
