This is a fabulous satirical print relating to the court of King George IV.
This one was made by William Heath (sometimes calling himself Paul Pry) and published by Thomas McLean in London (May 1829). So now nearly 200 years old.
There is a fine collection of prints by Heath in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery in London which lampoon the Royalty and Politicians of the Georgian era. This print is a harder satirical print to source - another impression in just as fine condition is in the collection of the NPG.
My print comes from a 19th Century collector's album - and it has never been on display - so all the original hand-colouring is fresh with no fading.
As you can see from all my photographs, it is in fine antique condition and has recently been professionally re-framed with a cream-coloured, acid-free window mount and simple black wooden frame.
The image measures 23.5 x 34.7 cm and the frame is 37 x 46 cm.
It is a lovely artwork - and a fabulous piece of British history. It is all ready for you to just hang on your wall.
The image shows King George IV, the Duke of Wellington, Lady Conyngham, and Robert Peel standing posed as four stagecoach characters. The image of the King and his mistress are lifted from other individual portraits by Heath - these are on offer in my shop.
