Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Beresford Egan (1905 - 1984) was a satirical draughtsman, painter, novelist and playwright. He was born in London but raised from the age of five in South Africa, where he was educated.

He returned to London in July 1926 after spending two years as a precocious sports cartoonist on the Rand Daily Mail in Johannesburg.

He quickly established himself in the artistic and literary atmosphere of London. He not only illustrated the works of other writers, but also his own novels. He wrote three plays, composed songs and undertook theatre criticism and caricatures. He acted in British movies including Latin Quarter and appeared in the dying days of British music hall as The Great Daleno.

His art was highly infleucned by Aubrey Beardsley and many of his illustrations were in an erotic vein.
