Lot Essay

Honeysett studied at the Croydon Art School. He has been described by Richard Ingrams of Punch as "representing the spirit of the seventies" and he wrote of Honeysett's cartoon characters that they "look distinctly scruffy and seedy, suggesting that everything, not only the furniture is falling apart"
