A rare & scarce mezzotint. 350 x 250mm (13¾ x 9¾") Paper toned, stained.
An idealised scene of the first meeting of George and Caroline of Brunswick, shortly before their marriage on 8th April 1795. The text refers to Caroline 'In beauty perfect' and George as a 'Godlike Youth': in reality George called for a glass of brandy, obviously disappointed, and Caroline said to her escort Lord Malmesbury '[the Prince is] very fat and he's nothing like as handsome as his portrait'. The pair separated the following year.
