T. Orde ft 1768.
Etching. Sheet 220 x 170mm (8¾ x 6¾"). Trimmed within plate on three sides.
A portrait of a man and a woman, both carrying baskets of crockery, by Thomas Orde-Powlett (1746-1807), a politician also known for his etched caricatures (mostly of Cambridge celebrities) which were published by his drawing-master, the well-known printmaker James Bretherton. The British Museum's impression has a pencil annotation 'Mrs. Hammond Printseller & D. Randal Printman at Cambridge', which they have taken as an identification. However as they have more than one Orde caricature with 'D. Randal' on the reverse it is more likely that Randal sold the print rather that is the subject.
See BM 1847,0713.61 for this print and 1847,0713.60 for the other 'Randal'. Ex. Collection N. Blackburn.
