Comments: Hablot Knight Browne (1815-1882), best known as ‘Phiz’, was a British artist and illustrator, best known for his illustrations for the works of Charles Dickens. This illustration of a pantomime audience was published originally in The Illustrated Times in 1855, credited to Phiz. It was reproduced, with a slightly different title and uncredited, in the Illustrated Sporting and Theatrical News in 1869, from which the above version of the image comes.
