Le Pas "Grave.
Pubd by MDarly Feby 20 1777.
Scarce and fine etching in vivid contemporary hand colour, watermarked laid paper. 245 x 345mm, 9¾ x 14½". A fantastic impression, with full margins.
Social satire: a couple in an interior dancing inelegantly. Surely in a thinly-veiled allusion, the colourist of this print has added an image of dancing dogs into the frame on the wall behind (upper left); this does not appear in the impression held in the BM. Published by Matthew Darly (c.1720 - 1781 or later).
BM Satires undescribed.
