[Paul Pry monogram] Esq Del
London, Published by Tho.s McLean 26 Haymarket, 1827
Hand-coloured etching. Sheet: 255 x 365mm (10 x 14¼''). Trimmed and tipped into album sheet.
Two contrasting men, exemplifying different fashions and physiognomies. The printmaker William Heath (1794-1840) used the pseudonym Paul Pry (taken from the name of a character in John Poole's 1825 comedy, and used to describe a very inquisitive person) between 1827-9, and rather than signing his name he used the 'Paul Pry' monogram seen here, a small man holding a walking stick. However this figure began to be copied by other caricaturists (including Sharpshooter ) and so Heath reverted to his own name.
