Four coloured etchings. Each sheet approx. 125 x 165mm (5 x 6½"). Trimmed to border and laid on album paper in a strip, concertinaed into a leather pouch with facsimile of Cruikshank's signature.
Four fine coloured etchings published over a period of four years, showing a dancing master instructing children while accompanying them on the violin. Etched by George Cruikshank (1792-1878). The son of a notable satirist (who died following a drinking match when George was only 19, leaving him as the family breadwinner), Cruikshank was a prolific and celebrated caricaturist from an early age. Alongside contemporaries such as Rowlandson and Gillray, he ridiculed the excesses of late Georgian Britain with devastating effectiveness (George IV eventually paid him 'not to caricature His Majesty in any immoral situation'). These prints date from the time when Cruikshank left behind political satire and moved into humorous book illustration.
