"Oh! Listen the voice of love."

London, H. Humphrey Nov. 14th. 1799


Original hand colouring

225 x 195 mm


An ugly man (left) kneels (on a spotted handkerchief) at the feet of a plain old maid seated on an upright chair; he holds her left hand, his right is on his breast. She holds up her fan in a way more encouraging than coy. Both grin broadly. A patterned carpet and plain wall complete the design BM 9450
