Niblett, or ‘Nibs’, is best known for his caricature of W.L.S. Churchill, MP, which appeared in Vanity Fair in 1911. However, four years earlier, the present image of Churchill was published in The Crown: The Court and Country Families Newspaper. Possibly only the second published caricature of Churchill by any artist (the first, by ‘Spy’, appearing in Vanity Fair in 1900), it is certainly more striking than Nibs’ later drawing and more representative of his emphatic ‘poster’ style. It is virtually unknown because of the scarcity of surviving copies of the short-lived periodical in which it first appeared. The drawing records a speech Winston Churchill gave on 18 May 1907, before 3,000 members of the Scottish Liberal Association at the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh.
