Abstract
  • [After British Museum No. 14200]“The Queen (1.) and King sit side by side on a double throne, almost back to back, while turning their eyes warily towards each other. They wear royal robes, the King is caricatured; at his knee is a rosette in the centre of which a bottle is depicted ; he holds orb and sceptre. She is comely but stout, her dress unduly defining her figure. The Archbishop, gross and bloated, stands behind the throne, sourly placing a large crown on the King's head. The Queen, who holds a fan, says: Oh! the Brute, but I'll tease him. He says: What a D---d thing I cannot shake her off, she is as artfull as the Devil, — curse Matrimony.” (Source: George)
