UCL HoA MA student Daen Palma Huse produces & presents series on cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne

18 February 2021

Congratulations to History of Art MA student Daen Palma Huse, whose first episode in his series about Victorian cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne (in collaboration with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Museums) has now launched.

The Cartoonist’s Camera: A View into Linley Sambourne’s World of Illustration and Cyanotype

The first episode in the series Calling at the Sambournes’ was launched as a collaboration between The Protagonist Magazine and Sambourne House as part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea museums. The series features experts in art, photography, social anthropology and food history, evolving around the former home and studio of Victorian cartoonist and Punch Magazine illustrator Edward Linley Sambourne (1844-1910) and his family. "The Cartoonist’s Camera: A View into Linley Sambourne’s World of Illustration and Cyanotype" starts the series, concentrating on Sambourne’s technique of photography as applied in his practice. Daen Palma Huse and Ram Shergill also give a practical demonstration of working with Cyanotype, following in the steps of the Victorian cartoonist.
"It has been a wonderful experience to work with Sambourne House and Leighton House in the past and now again, carrying out first-hand archival research at their respective sites in South Kensington. Previous collaborations have led to producing and presenting the current series with The Protagonist Magazine team." - Daen Palma Huse
