A Modern Midnight Conversation."Who can this Scene behold and not detest/The Vice of Drunkenness herein exprest.........."
Printed for R. Wilkinson no.58 in Cornhill. [n.d., c.1790.]
Mezzotint. 455 x 380mm. Time stained unexamined out of frame.
Elishia Kirkall [1682 - 1742] pirated image of Hogarth's print late 1730's early 40's probably first issued by John Bowles thought this particular impression published R. Wilkinson [1768 - 1825] who took over Bowles plates. Hogarth's title is 'A Midnight Modern Converstion' so the title has been reversed as well as the composition.
