George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925. 1929 saw the first performance of The Apple Cart.

Edmund J. Sullivan (1869-1933) was the subject of a full chapter in Gordon Ray's The Illustrator and the Book in England from 1790 to 1914 (pp.186-193). To Ray, "Sullivan's career as an illustrator was one of the most substantial and distinguished in the annals of English art". James Thorp called him "the greatest illustrator in line that this country has produced" while Percy Muir positioned him alongside Bewick, Cruikshank, Keen and Beardsley.
