Pair of engravings, 400 x 330mm, 15¾ x 132.
Hogarth's famous satire of the aggressively amorous advances of a nobleman on a chambermaid, followed by her begging him for more. As is typical of Hogarth, the scenes are crammed with visual references to the action, such as the 'before and after' pictures hanging on the walls, a book of poems by the scandalous Earl of Rochester and furniture in disarray in the latter.
Paulson: 141 & 142, second state of three.
