Hand-coloured etching. Plate 249 x 362mm (9¾ x 14¼"). Cut to platemark.
Satire on the relationship between Wellington and William IV, soon after the accession to the throne of the latter. William, who rides following a sign to Holland House (a centre of Whig influence), holds a 'Plan Bridge over Canal for Public', Wellington sits insecurely behind the saddle. Both are in civilian dress. Wellington left office within six months of the publication of this print.
