Lot 273: Patterson (Frank). 'Some Landlords I Know', one of Patterson's uncommon humorous pen-and-ink drawings, this one in a large vertical format, loosely inserted in a maroon card mount with a hardboard backing, and depicting eight landlords, plus one landlady, with a cyclist and his bicycle standing outside a thatched inn along the lower margin, each character is annotated by the artist, undated, but signed in the lower right corner, some light blue tinting, horizontal crease mark halfway down the image, and some dust marking, pencil annotation along the blank lower margin of the sheet and 'Cycling Editorial Department' ink stamp on the reverse, image size 18 x 12in (46 x 31cm).
