The Emperor's Bridge Campaign

to honor the life + advance the legacy of Emperor Norton

ARENA :: Visual Arts


The slideshow gallery below presents a chronological series of comics, starting with the famous cartoons by Edward Jump in the 1860s, that feature depictions of Emperor Norton.  The gallery is part of the Visual Arts section of The Emperor's Bridge Campaign's ARENA: Archive of Emperor Norton in Art, Music & Film.

For comic strips that feature Emperor Norton as a recurring character, a single episode or frame is used as an example and, where possible, a link to a larger selection is provided. 

Hover on each image to see a full description, including (where available) the artist, title, year,  copyright and source information. Click to enlarge and / or to see the full work.

Scroll below the following gallery for links to additional sections of the  Archive.

This curation seeks to be comprehensive but not exhaustive.
