Original Vanity Fair Print Lithograph of the of Mr. William Schwenck Gilbert, the English dramatist, librettist, poet and illustrator best known for his collaboration, Gilbert and Sullivan,  with composer Arthur Sullivan, which produced fourteen comic operas. The most famous of these include H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and one of the most frequently performed works in the history of musical theatre, The Mikado. The popularity of these works was supported for over a century by year-round performances of them, in Britain and abroad, by the repertory company that Gilbert, Sullivan and their producer Richard D’Oyly Carte founded, the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company.
