Public Opinion

London, T Benloe, June 20th. 1820


Original hand colouring

240 x 330 mm


A balance with George IV and his ministers with green bags on one pan being outweighed by Queen Caroline alone on the other, with John Bull cheering in the centre and soldiers toasting her at the left. In between is seaman stands , arms folded. There is a version of this in the BM which is in reverse. This etching appears to be the original, the details are more finely drawn, and the seaman is omiited in the BM version.
