EDITORS COMMENTS
This caricature depicts the Venerable Archdeacon Charles Gordon Cumming Dunbar, an Anglican clergyman of St. Andrew's Church in Tavistock Place, London, who found himself at the center of a sensational divorce case in 1881. The image, titled "The Church and the Stage -- the Pulpit and the Pay-Box," captures the intriguing juxtaposition of Dunbar's dual roles in religion and the theater world. Dunbar's wife, Edith Wentworth Dunbar, brought charges of adultery against him, but the archdeacon was ultimately found not guilty. The caricature, created in 1883, playfully illustrates the public's fascination with the clergyman's double life. The image shows Dunbar in his clerical attire, holding a church pulpit in one hand and a theater ticket in the other, with a theatrical pay-box and an office in the background. The caricature's title, "The Church and the Stage," emphasizes the contrast between the sacred and the secular, the pulpit and the pay-box. Alfred Bryan, a renowned caricaturist, is believed to be the artist behind this intriguing work. The image offers a glimpse into the complexities of Victorian society, where the lines between religion, morality, and entertainment were often blurred. This caricature of the Venerable Archdeacon Dunbar, a man of the cloth with a secret life in the theater, offers a fascinating glimpse into the intricacies of Victorian society and the public's fascination with the personal lives of prominent figures.
