Dick Sheppard and Aldous Huxley were among those who advocated passive resistance in the years preceding the 1914–18 war. Low discusses this attitude, and a similar cartoon of 1936, in his Autobiography, 1956, pp.301–6. N05464 was drawn for a double page illustration to an article by Rebecca West in Nash's Magazine, 1938.
