This scene is strongly reminiscent of William Hogarth's 'Chairing the Member', from his set of paintings (and prints), 'Humours of an Election' (paintings c.1754-5, now in the John Soane Museum). Engraving by William Blake (1757-1827), visionary artist and poet who also worked as a journeyman engraver. This early work was one of many Blake engraved from designs by his friend Thomas Stothard, Britain's most prolific book illustrator. While establishing himself as a copy engraver in the early 1780s, Blake was also studying at the Royal Academy and developing the highly personal approach he used in his original watercolours.

[The Sylph]
[The Sylph]
Stothard del Sharp sculpt
Published January 1st 1788 by W. Lowndes
Engraving, platemark 190 x 205mm (7½ x 8"). Thread margins; slight foxing. Unfinished proof.
Illustration to the novel 'The Sylph' by the political hostess Georgiana Cavendish, duchess of Devonshire (1757-8016). Unhappily married to the duke of Devonshire, ensconced in the Devonshire House Circle, and drinking and gambling heavily, Georgiana published the book, a roman-à-clef about high society, anonymously. (It was an open secret that Georgiana was the author, although she was not publicly exposed). Like Sheridan's 'School for Scandal' (which emerged from the same milieu), it scandalized critics for its portrayal of the aristocracy as drunks, blackmailers, wife-beaters and adulterers. In this scene, the male figure, who while walking had noticed two beautiful women, pursued them but stumbled and fell as the earth gave way. They, believing him to be seriously injured, rushed to help him (the male being in no hurry to disabuse them of that notion). Engraving after the most prolific book illustrator of the late 18th century, Thomas Stothard, by engraver William Sharp (1749-1824). An important contributor to the revival of the classical style of engraving in England (in the lineage of Sir Robert Strange and William Woollett), some of Sharp's best-known works were after major pictures by Sir Joshua Reynolds and Benjamin West. Sharp refused to join the Royal Academy on the inferior 'associate' basis which was the only way for specialist engravers to join at the time), Sharp's importance was nonetheless demonstrated by the honorary memberships bestowed on him by the Imperial Academy of Vienna and the Royal Academy of Munich.
