[The Misers] From the originals at Windsor L- C-town's dream.
Hand-coloured etching. Sheet size: 440 x 335mm (17¼ x 13¼"). Trimmed inside platemark. Borders bit tatty. Very scarce.
After Quintin Matsys' picture of 'The Misers' at Windsor. The misers being George III, writing in his ledger and counting coins, and Queen Charlotte, leaning on his shoulder. The pose, dress, background, and accessories are closely copied, except that the hood over the Queen's head is pushed back to show a large ear-ring and her hair which is decorated with pearls. The 's' of 'Originals' in the title has been scored through, stressing the identification of 'the Misers'.
