Pitt Jouant des Marionettes, ou les Anglos-Napolitanos ambulans.
Coloured engraving. 420 x 260mm. Some spotting to edges.
George III with Pitt on his shoulders, presenting a puppet show in which a British naval officer arrives to escort the king & queen of Naples to safety away from the French army (seen here in the audience). Whether this is after the battle of Marengo (June 1800) or Austerlitz (January 1806) is unclear.
