[Anon., c.1660]
Engraving, sheet 400 x 530mm (15¾ x 20¾"). Trimmed; crease through centre. Part of Broadside.
Dutch print presumably made to commemorate the restoration of Charles II in 1660. A number of prints relating to the event were produced in the Netherlands, since it was there that Charles II made the declaration of Breda before travelling through Delft and the Hague en route to England. He was lavishly entertained in the Hague, and it may be this occasion that is depicted in the procession behind. If it is intended for the king's coronation procession in London, the topography seems inaccurate.

A view of George IV's extravagent banquet held at Westminster hall after his coronation.

A temporary triumphal arch was erected at the north end of the hall in the style of a medieval castle. In accordance with the vogue for Romanticism and with his own taste for flamboyant clothes, George insisted that the participants should dress in Tudor and Stuart period costumes.

Satire on the coronation of George IV (19th July 1821). George IV (1762-1830) sits on a throne in Westminster Abbey, wearing a crown and holds his orb and sceptre. The Archbishop, well characterized, stands beside him, holding his mitre, his right hand on the chair. On the King's right hand stands Londonderry (Castlereagh) (1769-1822) in Garter robes; other peers stand behind him. All watch the antics of Canning (1770-1827), dressed as a jester/fool. He kneels on the dais at the King's feet, arms flung wide; at his feet is a high-crowned hat with a peacock's feather; on the back of his tunic are the letters M P and P C. He declaims, "The delight of the Nation at the Celebration of your Majesty's Coronation, the Exultation throughout the Creation exceeds all Imagination. the Expectation to which the Anticipation of this Consumation has given occasion is beyond Contemplation; we offer the Oblation of our Congratulation, without Hesitation or Trepidation; no Tribulation can effect a Cessation of the Sensation which pervades every Station; no Situation in whatever Deprivation will utter an Execration for the Association are in Preparation to effect an Extirpation of all Defamation. We hope the Expectation of a Decollation will produce Annihilation of all Deviation from strict Regulation; we submit to Subjugation without Hesitation, and we offer our Oration with gratefull Adoration upon this Jollification." The King touches (or kicks) Canning's chin with his toe. Peeresses stand in a gallery across the north transept, holding their coronets. Above them is a second and more crowded gallery.
