This is a very interesting antique Georgian print by the celebrated caricaturist and illustrator, George Cruikshank. During his lifetime he was known as the "modern Hogarth" and is best known for his book illustrations for his friend, Charles Dickins.

Cruikshank's early career was renowned for his social caricatures of English life. He gained notoriety with his political prints that attacked the royal family and leading politicians.

This work dating to 1825 is a fabulous and typical work by the artist. He shows a gentleman seated at a table and has just received an anonymous letter with distressing details which is seen under his hand on the table. The letter probably alludes to indiscretions committed by his lady. He is consumed with jealousy and this emotion is conveyed in the little figures which surrounded him.

Little devils are shown on his shoulder and one whispers into his ear. To the lower left, a little gentleman figure is shown embracing a lady. At the lower right, a woman is shown climbing down a little ladder into the arms of her secret paramour.

At the edge of the table is a little hanging figure - on the mantlepiece we have a duelling scene. On the table to the right two lawyers read out court summons and legal writs.

The print is inscribed below: A Crowquill Esqr, invt. ; G Cruikshank, fect. (to the left) and (to the right): Pubd November 1st, 1825 by S Knight, Sweetings Alley, Ryl X'change , 1825.

The print is an early impression from 1825 (there were later re-issues made in 1835).

It is in good antique condition. It has black etched lines and has its original watercolour hand-colouring - in shades of blue, pale blues and pale yellows.

Image size is 19 x 24 cm.

It has recently been remounted with a fresh ivory coloured window mount which measures 33 x 40 cm. It could be framed with a simple black frame on request and then will be lovely and fresh all ready to be hung on your wall.

A much sought after and interesting Georgian print which is listed at a fair price.
