Abstract
  • British Museum No. 9236“The Irishman, with coarse features and cropped hair, stands on a rounded hill, 1. arm raised oratorically, r. hand on one of two pistols in his belt, saying. No Union, Erin go Brack! He wears a round hat tilted to one side, and with a small tuft or plume, a double-breasted coat with the skirts looped up, pantaloons and half-boots, a long sabre. He looks to the 1. On the plain beneath (r.), across which run tiny fugitives, are burning buildings and clouds of smoke.” (Source: George)
