Timothy Tallow, and his Wife, going to Graves Hall, on a Sunday.['Le Cabriole Anglois. The Buggy.' in image.]
Publish'd according to Act, Augst. 10th. 1772 by MDarly, No.39 in the Strand.
Etching, 245 x 345mm. 9¾ x 13½".
Social satire: a man with his grotesque and fat wife driving a coach pulled by a tired horse towards a country mansion on the outskirts of London. The print seems to be mocking nouveau-riche Londoners; the skyline of the capital (including The Monument and St. Paul's Cathedral) is visible on the horizon. After Richard St George Mansergh St George (1750 - 1798). From an album of caricatures published by Mary Darly dated January 1776. It seems that her husband Matthew made the plates.
BM Satires: 4640.
