Charles Lane Vicary lived and worked in Newton Abbot in Devon in the early and mid  20th century. We Have one of his satirical paintings making fun of local characters.My husband is a great fan, being a Newtonian and has just bought some postcards of his characatures,

I have 'three motoring humour' postcards drawn by Vicary in about 1905, so he was clearly involved in this lucrative trade at this time as well.

I have a number of acrylic paintings and cartoons from this artist dated mid 1930's. The subjects were characters from Gilbert and Sullivan played by my grandparents. This was when they lived at Ashburton Devon. I guess Mr Vicory was a family friend.

I have three original pieces of work by Charles Lane Vicary. 'Hospital Saturday' dated 1929, 'Widdecombe Fair' dated 1908 and 'Adonis' dated 1907. They have passed to me from my grandparents who were Newtonians. Hospital Saturday has 'C.L Vicary, Dyrons, Newton Abbot' on the back of the frame and '5.50, for insurance purposes' written on it.
