Eustace and Uncle Dan

Louis Huard

August 1867

Wood engraving by W. Thomas.

7¼ x 5½ inches

An illustration for M.E. Braddon’s Dead-Sea Fruit serialized in Belgravia 3 (August 1867): 131.

A typical example of Huard’s sensational illustrations, giving vivid, melodramatic form to Braddon’s novel. His designs usually consist of congested tableaux in which the characters attitudinize towards each other and there is particular emphasis on hand gestures and intent gazing.
