The Imports of Great Britain from France.
The Imports of Great Britain from France. Humbly Address'd to the Laudable Associations of Anti-Gallicans, and the generous promoters of the British Arts & Manufactories; by their sincere Well-wisher, and truly devoted humble Servant, L.P. Boitard.

Etching, sheet 245 x 345mm. 9¾ x 13½". Trimmed within plate; small tear into lower inscription.
A satire on the English demand for French goods despite being a year into the Seven Years' War (1756-63), drawn and etched by Louis Philippe Boitard. It shows crowds milling around Custom House Quay desperate to see the French goods being unloaded: these include a cook, an abbé, a dancer, crates of perfumes and millinery, wine barrels and Normandy cheese. In the background is the Custom House, the Tower of London and a forest of ships' masts. Boitard's original pen and brown ink sketch, with grey and brown wash, is in the British Museum (1908,0822.10).
