Mind and Matter - Caricatures of Professor Budden and Henry Carr
Edward Carter Preston illustrated the differences between Liverpool University’s School of Architecture and the Sandon Studios Society in this drawing. Lionel Budden was a professor of architecture at the University who was renowned for his theorybased approach. To reflect this, Carter Preston composed his body from drawing instruments with a column capital as a hat. The bohemian Sandon member Henry Carr is presented as a fleshy mass, symbolising his selfindulgence. The figures play on the Dionysian-Apollonian dialectic of emotion and logic, indicated respectively by the trailing vines and ordered columns.
