Morning. Scene in the Island of Jersey. Night.  Scene in the Duchy of Lancaste - Antique Print from 1829

Genuine antique
dated:

1829

Description:

Satirical caricature of the Duke of Wellington courting two different women on the same day.

Advancing on Lady Jersey, she remains uninterested, replying “my heart bleeds only for my persecuted friends of the true church in Ireland.”

The print is both an allusion to his womanising tendencies and the unpopularity of his Roman Catholic Relief act of 1829. It almost seems to suggest that one was a consequence of the other, that his weakness for beautiful women, lead to his political reform in Ireland.

At top is the following disclaimer by the artist:
I’m sorry to intrude, but some dirty rogue has lately been copying my caricatures, robbing us of our ideas and just profit – may I ask of my friends not to purchase unless they see the publisher T.Mcleans name at the bottom – all others are copies.”
