Sue Macartney–Snape, award winning artist and illustrator of the ‘Social Stereotypes’
column in the Saturday Telegraph, pays homage to one of the UK’s most loved sporting
events in a magnificent illustration of Henley Royal Regatta.
Macartney-Snape has been the Saturday Telegraph Magazine’s illustrator for over 15
years, and has a reputation as the finest in her field. With her prints selling worldwide,
she is a household name, and has been widely acclaimed as ‘the Wodehouse of art’
and ‘a master of caricature.’ (John Julius Norwich)
Her depiction of Henley, exquisite in its detail, demonstrates Macartney-Snape’s
unequivocal talent. Awash with amusing and charming characters, fans of Henley are
sure to recognise themselves and their contemporaries among the throngs of dapper
gentlemen, English roses and rowing heroes.
The illustration was published in the Saturday Telegraph Magazine this weekend, on
the 26th of June, in celebration of the start of Henley Royal Regatta on Wednesday
the 30th of June.
