Six Weeks after Marriage.
Mezzotint with very large margins, platemark 355 x 255mm (14 x 10"). Year of publication scratched out.
As opposed to the situation 'Three Weeks after Marriage' (see ref. 36224) which depicts only a tense situation, here it has become violent, with the husband attempting to defend himself not only from his wife but also the terrier biting at his clothes. An overturned table sends plates and cutlery across the floor.
Ex: collection of the Late Hon. C. Lennox-Boyd; BM Satires 4625
