I.C. [Isaac Cruikshank]
London Pub Nov 10 1796 by S W Fores 50 Piccadilly.
Coloured etching. 350 x 210mm (13¾ x 8¼"). Narrow margins.
Satirical portrait of James Harris (1746-1820), 1st Earl of Malmesbury, sitting with both thumbs in his mouth. A career diplomat, he served in Madrid, Berlin, St Petersburg and the Hague and was sent to Brunswick to solicit the hand of Princess Caroline for the Prince of Wales. This satire relates to one of his less successful missions: in 1796 he was sent to negotiate peace with the French Directory. A conversation was quoted in the London Chronicle in which Malmesbury told Delacroix, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, that he would have to contact London to ask if he was authorized to conclude a treaty for the allies of Great Britain.
