Henry Bateman moved to England with his parents as a baby. After studying art in London, he made a name for himself as a caricaturist with 'The Tatler', 'The Sketch' and 'The Bystander'. After being invalided out of the forces in 1915, he produced war related cartoons for 'Punch'. Between the wars he worked on film and poster advertisements for companies including Lucky Strike, Guinness, Shell and Moss Bros. During the Second World War he designed posters for the government, including his most famous posters, 'Coughs and Sneezes Spread Diseases'.
