Carlo Pelegrini : Born in Capua, Italy, he traveled to London, met Thomas Bowles, creator of Vanity Fair, and worked as the main caricaturist together with Stephen Ward (Spy) from 1869-1889. He was a flamboyant character, openly homosexual at a time when it was illegal in Britain, was fastidious about his appearance, and sued many times for his lampooning illustration, none being successful. Spy became famous after his death but Pelligini, however many collectors consider APE to be technically superior. In his early years he signed his work as “Singe” changing it to APE, Italian for “bee”.
