Description  
The title Lawson Wood has chosen gives a story to the picture. "Collared and Cuffed" depicts a young boy who has clearly been illegally fishing and is now crying, both because the Policeman has given him a good cuff, probably on his bottom, and is walking off with both his fishing rod and his pail of fish. Lawson Wood is one of the most unusual artists of the golden age of magazine illustration, largely because of the subjects he chose to illustrate. Lawson’s humorous style and beautifully coloured work is technically superb and therefore appeals to both adults and children.
