Richard D'Oyly Carte - Original Vanity Fair Print

Richard D'Oyly Carte was caricatured by 'SPY' for Vanity Fair in 1891 by which time Gilbert and Sullivan were nearing the end of their colaborative career.
Vanity Fair in honouring D'oyly Carte and the construction of his new theatre, The Royal English Opera, which opened on the 31st January 1891, made special mention of that 'beneficient triumverate', Gilbert, Sullivan and D'Oyly Carte.

This scarce and original Vanity Fair print may be purchased here
