Death in a Frolic or the Misers exit.
Mezzotint with large margins, very scarce. Plate 355 x 254mm (14 x 10"). Crinkling and creasing. Tatty.
Death, as a skeleton with a violin, fiddling before a bearded old man seated at a desk covered with coins and documents, spectacles in one hand and one gouty foot on a stool in front of him; in the background, to right, seen through a door, Death visiting a younger gentleman wearing a plumed hat. A mezzotint by Bernard Lens II, in reverse direction, may have been the source for this. First state [recorded in the Lennox-Boyd database].
