Biographical Sketch Richard Doyle was born in London in September of 1824, and died December 11, 1883 in London. He was an artist and caricaturist. In 1843 he became a regular contributor to the humor magazine Punch, but left in 1850 because of its anti-Catholic bias. He had a special gift for painting parades, processions, and historical pageantry, and also became a leading illustrator of fairyland figures, such as pixies, giants, trolls, etc.
