The Chris Beetles Gallery sold this fake David Low cartoon to an unspecting customer.  This is quite clearly a forgery as Low never drew Adolf Hitler as a bloodhound. The forger copied the image of former Labour Prime Minister Ramsay Macdonald  as a bloodhound from Low's book Ye Madde Designer and gave it a toothbrush moustache to make it look like Hitler (See both images above). Chris Beetles must have known this was a forgery. If he did not, Chris Beetles should not be dealing in original political cartoon art as he clearly does not have the expertise required to do so.
