Catharina Macaulay.
Catharina Macaulay.
I. B. Cipriani D. I. Basire S. MDCCLXVII.
[c.1768.]
Engraving. 215 x 165mm (8½ x 6½").
Portrait of Catherine Graham when Mrs Macaulay (173191), head only in profile to left with pearl choker and earrings, in a circle within a wreath, a medallion with a procession of four figures inscribed 'Brutus' below main image; after Cipriani, frontispiece to vol III of her 'History of England' (London, 1767). Although the publication date on the titlepage of the volume is 1767, this print was issued in 1768, being advertised in the Public Advertiser, 11 June 1768, as showing her 'in the character of the Libertas on the Medals of Brutus and Cassius'. Macaulay (1731 1791), was an English Whig republican historian. She was privately educated, and her readings in Greek and Roman history included her enthusiasm for libertarian and republican ideals. Following her marriage to the Scottish physician George Macaulay in 1760, she began her History of England from the Accession of James I to That of the Brunswick Line, published in eight volumes between 1763 and 1783, in which she championed the Parliamentary cause, condemned Oliver Cromwell as a tyrant, and found her own republican ideals reflected in the parliamentarian John Hampden.
