Biography/History

Arthur Horner was born in Melbourne (10 May 1916). In his early career he wrote and acted in radio plays and regularly contributed cartoons to the Sydney Bulletin, later joining Smith's Weekly and the ABC Weekly. Following service in WWII, Horner moved to London (1947) to study. Horner worked for the News Chronicle (1952), developing the Colonel Pewter character. In 1954 Horner became the News Chronicle's political cartoonist, continuing to draw the Colonel Pewter strips until 1963. In 1964, Horner transferred to the Guardian, finally ending the Colonel Pewter strip in 1970. Horner produced lithographs, etchings, aquatints and seriographs, and experimented with animated film. Horner continued drawing political cartoons, caricatures and theatre drawings for the Melbourne Age for several years, also creating a new strip about the Archangel Uriel. Arthur Horner died in Melbourne in February 1997.
