In 1884, Thomas Nast embarked on a successful country-wide lecture tour with English humorist Walter Pelham. Pelham would speak, describing a scene or person, and Nast would rapidly draw the picture to the great amusement of the audience. Following his departure from "Harper’s Weekly," in an attempt to shore up his finances, Nast undertook a similar tour in 1888. Photos courtesy: Metropolitan Museum of Art Digital Collection.
