The Toilet of a Modern Belle.
The Toilet of a Modern Belle. Inflating a Lady.
[image of Paul Pry] Esqr.
Pub July 1829 by S Gans 15 Southampton Street Strand (Sole Publisher of P.Prys Caricatures).
Hand coloured etching, sheet 250 x 350mm (10 x 13¾"). Trimmed within plate.
A lady stands complacently in a décolleté dress with enormously full sleeves to the wrist. She extends one arm to a lady's maid, who kneels, blowing into the sleeve through a long tobacco-pipe, the bowl of which is inside the sleeve, and is distressed by the effort. The left arm hangs down, the sleeve still in limp folds awaiting blowing up. Her hair is dressed in enormous upstanding loops. The maid is coquettishly and fashionably dressed, with a high frilled cap trimmed with stiff ribbon loops, and a small frilled white apron. Behind is a toilet table on which lie four tobacco-pipes. Print most likely made by 'Sharpshooter' John Philips (fl.1825-1831) known as the "false Paul Pry" of 1829 who used Heath's signature of a tiny figure of John Liston .
