A French painter and caricaturist, Jean Baptiste Guth first came to England in 1883. His first portrait for 'Vanity Fair' was produced in 1889, and until 1908, he was a regular contributor to the publication. In general, Jean Baptiste Guth's portraits are more studied and less satirical than any other 'Vanity Fair' artist.
