The connections between aestheticism and earlier forms of dandyism are traced in chapter 6, notably in relation to ways in which coded references to same-sex desire can be detected in the political caricatures of John Doyle and other, lesser-known, artists and cartoonists. There is a particular focus on images of George Byron, Henry Brougham and Benjamin Disraeli.

Keywords:   Henry Brougham, John Doyle, Benjamin Disraeli, George Byron
