George IV (1762-1830) as Prince of Wales. At this time, he was given no official duties by his father King George III. In a bid to gain power he sought to undermine the King by siding with the Whig opposition led by Charles James Fox, and when the King went temporarily insane in 1788, William Pitt proposed a restricted Regency to protect the King's interests. Pitt's Regency Bill was revived during the King's final illness and George IV was sworn Regent in 1811 and crowned King in 1820.

[Old Trees with old man, a girl and dog]
R. Corbould 1802 [in image lower right]
Pen lithograph, rare; sheet 235 x 315mm (9¼ x 12½"). Glued to thick backing sheet; loss to lower left corner.
Early lithograph by Richard Corbould (1757-1831), an versatile artist who worked in many media and styles although chiefly remembered as a designer of book illustrations. This lithograph was included in the first portfolio of artists' lithographs, 'Specimens of Polyauthography'. The new medium allowed artists to draw directly onto a prepared stone, allowing artists to make prints which arguably resembled drawings more than any earlier printmaking technique. Unlike many printmaking techniques, lithography required no special training as artists could work directly onto the plate and leave specialist printers to actually make the prints. For this reason many artists who were not trained printmakers (such as Géricault and Delacroix) often worked in lithography.
