A Wary Politician / A Discarded PolicianWell Sweated. Those that are in, will Grin / A Hard Case. Those that are out, will Pout.
Etching, platemark 200 x 240mm (8 x 9½").
Satire on the ups and downs of life in politics- on the left a plump John Bull-like figure celebrates his success with a glass of wine. He holds a bag of money and sits before a picture of the Bank of England. On the right is a thin and depressed-looking figure sat in front of the King's Bench prison in Southwark.
