Gerald Scarfe’s previously un-exhibited drawings of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Gerald Scarfe captured the Iron Lady in satirical cartoon over a period of 22 years – from her days as a member of the shadow cabinet to her leadership of the Conservative Party and her tenure as Prime Minister, as well as her political decline. He pulled no punches, portraying Thatcher as equally cunning, ruthless, mean spirited, vain, terrifying, sharp and sexy.

Brought together for this display at The Bowes Museum, Scarfe's cartoons highlight key moments in British social history, such as the Winter of Discontent, the miners’ strike and the Falklands War.
