Mr Cave Underhill ye Famous Comedian in ye Habit of Obadiah ye Fanatick Elder.
R Bing pinx J. Faber Junior fecit 1712.
Rare mezzotint, sheet 130 x 85mm (5 x 3¼"). Trimmed; false margins added.
Cave Underhill (1634-1713), actor, here playing the role of Obadiah in 'The Committee' by Sir Robert Howard. Underhill had an acting career of almost fifty years, in which he specialised in eccentric and stupid characters. In the words of Colley Cibber, Underhill was 'a correct and natural Comedian, his particular Excellence was in Characters that may be called Still-life, I mean the Stiff, the Heavy, and the Stupid; to these he gave the exactest and the most expressive colours, and in some of them look'd as if it were not in the power of human Passions to alter a Feature of him His Face was full and long; from his Crown to the end of his Nose was the shorter half of it, so that the Disproportion of his lower Features, when soberly compos'd, with an unwandering Eye hanging over them, threw him into the most lumpish, moping Mortal that ever made beholders merry!' Engraved after the oil painting by Robert Byng, now in the Garrick Club, London.
