Aquatint. Sheet 240 x 155mm (9½ x 6"). Trimmed slightly into plate.
Portrait of François-Adrien Boieldieu (1775 - 1834), French composer, mainly of operas, often called "the French Mozart". In 1825, he produced his operatic masterpiece, La dame blanche (revived in the Salle Favart in 1997 and recorded by the conductor Marc Minkowski). Unusual for the time, La dame blanche was based on episodes from two novels by Walter Scott. The libretto by Eugène Scribe is built around the theme of the long-lost child fortunately recognized at a moment of peril. The style of the opera influenced Lucia di Lammermoor, I puritani, and La jolie fille de Perth. La dame blanche was one of the early attempts to introduce the fantastic into opera.

Napoleon climbs out of a globe near the East Indies and, shocked to be greeted by John Bull with cudgel raised, drops his sword and his 'Plan of operations'. In John's back pocket are papers marked 'Secret Intelligence'. In 1808 Napoleon wrote to Descrès: 'There is not much news from India. England is in great penury there, and the arrival of an expedition would ruin that country from top to bottom. The more I reflect on this step, the less inconvenience I see in taking it'.

[Brewing] The Triumph of Quassia.
[Brewing] The Triumph of Quassia.
[after James Gillray]
[n.d. c.1806]
Hand coloured etching, sheet 170 x 220mm (6¾ x 8¾"). Trimmed within plate and glued to backing sheet. Folds as issued.
A satire on the new tax on private brewers which was unpopular because it gave a monopoly to the larger public brewers, who were suspected of substituting hops for the cheap bark of quassia, a bitter-tasting tropical plant. In a parody of a Bacchic procession, the brewers carry a barrel on which rides a Bacchus-like black figure. In one hand he holds a scroll that reads "Kill-Devil forever" and in the other a tankard of beer, from which ailments radiate 'apoplexy, palsy, consumption, debility, colic, stupor, dropsy, scurvy, dysentery, haemorrhoid, hydrophobie, idiotism.' The depiction of Bacchus, the classical god of winemaking, fertility and religious ecstasy, as a black figure is based on pseudoscientific notions of the physical and moral inferiority of black Africans. In England at the time, it was widely believed that black people were subject to unbridled sensuality and impulses, and this belief was used to justify their slavery. The group is preceded on horseback by the three leading ministers of the time, pockets full of gold, who formed a coalition known as the Ministry of Talent. From left to right they are: Lord Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, Chancellor of the Exchequer; Lord William Wyndham Grenville, Prime Minister; and Charles Fox, then Foreign Secretary. A reduced version of the print made by James Gillray and published by Hannah Humphrey.
