The Macaroni Shoe Maker, taking his Mundy's Ride.
Etching, 175 x 250mm. 7 x 9¾".
A man, probably intended for the fashionable shoe maker Mundy, with a long tail of hair holding a lady's shoe on horseback; a walker on the road with hat and stick waves him on his way. Numbered '20' upper right. From an album of caricatures published by Mary Darly dated January 1776. It seems that her husband Matthew made the plates.
