Honble. Charles James Fox. Addressing the Electors of Westminster from the Hustings at Covent Garden.
Publish'd Augt. 7. 1802 by I. Hinton, 44, Wells Strt. Oxford Strt. London.
Mezzotint, 350 x 250mm. 13¾ x 9¾". Margins a little tatty.
Charles James Fox (1749 - 1806), Whig statesman, third son of Henry Fox, and Lady Carloline Georgina Lennox. Here shown on the Hustings in front of St. Paul's Church Covent Garden, campaigning for the Westminster election. On the wall behind him is a notice 'State of the Poll', Fox leading. Fox was the first foreign secretary of the United Kingdom and vocal supporter of American independence. Also known for his rivalry with William Pitt the Younger and a staunch opponent of George III he was reckless in politics as at the gaming tables. Fox held office briefly as a Tory under Lord North then led the opposition. Fox strongly criticised Lord North and the conduct of the American war, viewing the cause of the American patriots as a struggle for liberty against oppressive external power. He supported the revolutionaries of the United States, often dressing in the colours of George Washington's army. He championed America’s cause, denouncing taxation of Americans without their consent. Reform was a passion but as a supporter of the revolutionary cause in France, his credibility was diminished from 1792 by the excesses of the French revolutionaries.
