The man who drank the band's champagne by H. M. Bateman
Illustration by H. M. Bateman showing a man in evening dress quaffing a glass of champagne watched by an astonished orchestra. Bateman (1887-1970) was a popular artist and regularly contributed to the Sketch, the Tatler and the Bystander. His efficient, bold style depicting social faux-pas was ground breaking for its time and his work is a brilliant reflection of the period.
