St Martins in an Uproar.
[by Charles Williams]
Pubd Octr 1 1801 by S W Fores No 50 Piccadilly. Folios of Caricatures lent out for the Evening
Etching with hand-colouring, platemark 240 x 370mm (9½ x 14½"). Hole upper centre (in church railing). Stamp of S.W. Fores lower right. Small margins.
Scene outside the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields, now facing Trafalgar Square. Clergymen chase an imposter dressed as a parson out of the church, while couples on the right assail him for having falsely married them. Etched by Charles Williams (1797 - 1830, fl.), prolific etcher of satires from his own designs and those of other artists (especially Woodward). Almost all his plates are anonymous and little work has been done to establish for certain which prints he made. As a result Williams is little-known in comparison with contemporaries such as Rowlandson and Gillray in spite of the comparable quality of some of his work. This impression bears the 'S.W.F.' stamp of the publisher S.W. Fores, also found on impressions of Fores prints in the British Museum and the Hermitage, St Petersburg.
