James Gillray 4.


After failing as a portrait painter, Gillray worked as a freelenace engraver and etcher. After 1782 he started producing political satires, mainly inspired by the conflict between the Whigs and the Tories, the French Revolution and war against Napoleon. Originally his caricatures would have been issued separately, mainly from the print shop of his mistress, Hannah Humphrey, in St. James's Street, London. His eyesight started failing him, causing him to stop work in 1809. Depressed he turned to drink, and in July 1811 Gillray attempted to kill himself by throwing himself out of attic window above Humphrey's shop. He failed, and survived four years of insanity before dying in 1815.



Republican Attack
THE REPUBLICAN ATTACK. November 1st, 1795. PEPPER ARDEN. DUNDAS. GRENVILLE. LOUGHBOROUGH. GEORGE HI. EARLS ONSLOW AND WESTMORELAND. PITT. GRAFTON. STANHOPE. LAUDERDALE. SHERIDAN. FOX. LANSDOWNE. On the outrageous attack upon the King by the mob, when he was proceeding to open Parliament, on the 29th of October, 1795. The satirist has chosen to represent the leaders of the Opposition in Parliament, under the character of rioters. The royal carriage, driven somewhat furiously by Pitt, is running over Britannia. The cries of the real mob were for cheap bread and peace, and in their rage the populace added, " No King I" and " Down with George I" The window of the state carriage was broken by a stone or, as was said, from a shot from an air-gun.This is from the later Bohn Edition of 1849 to 1851  hand coloured unmounted  £75




Refined Feelings
A PROOF OF THE REFINED FEELINGS OF AN AMIABLE CHARACTER, LATELY A CANDIDATE FOR A CERTAIN ANCIENT CITY. no date, (circa 1780-1)On the left of the print is a gentleman with a horse  whip in his right hand; with his left he has hold ofthe ear of a lady, whose bonnet and feathers he has knocked off, and is threatening to horsewhip. He is saying, " Pro Bono Patrle;" on his left is a man calling out," I'll support you." On the right of the print the clergy in canonicals are drawn up, shocked at the violence of the proceeding. A cathedral is seen shadowed at a distance. This evidently alludes to some election squabble in a cathedral city. The lady was probably an active canvasser for the rival candidate.We have made extensive inquiries respecting thismspirited print, but we have not been able to obtain even a surmise of the person alluded to. In the absence of ^ipositive information, we will ourselves hazard a conjecture.

CUPID. May 7th, 1799.
NICHOLLS. Gillray has introduced Nicholls into his " New Pantheon" in the character of Cupid. He was blind of one eye, and his features were remarkably plain. His elocution was ungraceful, and his action generally much too  vehement. He exhibited the contortions of the Sybil, without her inspiration. £35 edge tear base This is from the later Bohn Edition of 1849 to 1851




Habits
HABITS OF NEW FRENCH LEGISLATORS AND OTHER PUBLIC FUNCTIONARIES, No. 1.—Le Ministee d'Etat en Grand Costume.April 18th, 1798. CHARLES FOX. The National Convention of France flattered the vanity of the revolutionary statesmen under the Directory, and gratified the love of the populace for external show, by  appointing a special costume for the different Officers of  State. It was pretended by the Court Party in England that the Whigs aimed at imitating the French revolutionists in this country, and Gillray has, in this series of " habits," clad each of the more prominent of " the party" in the peculiar costume which was presumed to be the object of his ambition, if the present order of things were once overthrown. Fox, the great man of the Opposition, was supposed to aim at nothing less than the place of First Minister.

PIZARRO CONTEMPLATING OVER THE PRODUCT OF HIS NEW PERUVIAN MINE.
Character of Pizarro. He is contemplating the product of his own Peruvian mine, and thus soliloquises, "Honour! reputation!-a mere bubble! Will the praises of posterity charm my bones in the grave? psha! my present purpose is all! 0, gold! gold! for thee I would sell my native Spain, as freely as I would plunder Peru." The sarcastic insinuation intended to be conveyed by this print is that Sheridan's political feelings were more in unison with those of Pizarro, than with the patriotic sentiments he has put into the mouth of the Peruvian General Rolla. The play was brought out at Drury Lane on the 24th of May, 1799, and was eminently successful. George III. who for a considerable time had confined his theatrical visits to Covent Garden, now signified his intention of being present at the performance of Pizarro, and having witnessed the representation expressed warm admiration of it. Twenty-nine editions of Pizarro, consisting each of a thousand copies, were sold in a very short time, and of course added considerably to Sheridan's gains by the play..** Hand Coloured.

On the Devil's (Home Tooke's) wings are inscribed "Deceit" and "Sedition;" he has a clerical band under his chin. Lord Cochrane holds the pole with one hand, and with the other flourishes the cudgel of "Reform." In his pocket are "Charges against Lord St. Vincent;" he has kicked down Elliot the brewer, who stood on the Tory interest, but soon discovered he had not the slightest chance of success. "Quassia" is inscribed on his body; a beer-barrel, inscribed "Elliott's," is falling with him and hides his head. Sheridan, in a harlequin's jacket, is vainly endeavouring to climb up the pole, intimating he has lost the election.

Gill- ray has frequently represented him as an inebriated votary of Bacchus ; he has here represented him sacrificing to Venus. After dining at the Piazza Coffee House, he would sally forth, and in a state of intoxication might be seen in the saloons of the theatres, or other places of public resort, seated on a sofa between a couple of fair Cyprians, quaffing his wine and conversing with them. He used to wear a grey coat, turned up with a black velvet collar, black small clothes, and black silk stockings, and would ask them, " If they could take up with a country curate."** Hand Coloured.

Fox, charmed with the grateful acknowledgments of his exertions, says, " Oh, how I shall enjoy to sit down with him on the bench of honesty." " An immaculate statesman, ; just like my own papa." Fox holds in his left hand behind him " Arrangements for a new Coalition."

HOMER SINGING HIS VERSES TO THE GREEKS. June 16th, 1797.
CAPTAIN MORRIS. SHERIDAN. FOX. This is understood to be an excellent and characteristic portrait of the celebrated song-writer, Captain Morris. It is enough to say that the allusions are to the licentious character of many of his effusions. Captain Morris, of the Life Guards, was distinguished by his social qualities, the vivacity of his conversation, the inexhaustible fund of merriment and anecdote which enlivened it ; and above all, by the facility with which he composed convivial songs, and the hilarity with which he sung them. These qualifications rendered him an universal favourite, and introduced him to the society and sumptuous** Hand Coloured.

Tierney complained of the precipitancy of the Right Hon. Gentleman. He had heard no arguments that proved its propriety.

Caricature by Gillray first published by H. Humphreys on February 1st, 1796. This print is from the third major edition published by Henry G. Bohn. Later hand colouring. FOX. BYNG. MAINWARING.Never during the reign of George III. not even during the American or French wars, were the public meetings so universal, and so respectably attended, as against the two bills for the protection of the King's person, and against Seditious Meetings, passed by Ministers in consequence of the outrage against the King at the opening of Parliament in October, 1795. The restrictions as originally proposed were so stringent, that a meeting even in a private house, exceeding fifty, could not take place without giving notice to a magistrate, who might attend if he thought proper, and at his pleasure order the meeting to disperse, and any person not obeying was to be guilty of felony. The Sheriff of Middlesex summoned the freeholders to assemble at the Mermaid, at Hackney, on November 21, but the house could not contain a third of the number assembled, and they adjourned to the green adjoining the house. The Duke of Norfolk opened the proceedings, and told the meeting they must not be misled by the specious titles of the bills, " I dare say, if the High Priest of the Spanish Inquisition was to come among us to introduce his system of inquisition here, he would call it an act for the better support and protection of religion ; but we have understandings that are not to be deceived in this way." The meeting returned thanks to Mr. Byng for his opposition to the measure, and ordered their petition to be presented by both their Members. Mainwaring, the ministerial Member, candidly stated in the House of Commons, that the meeting was most numerously and respectably attended, and that the requisition to the Sheriff had been " signed by three Dukes, one Marquis, two Earls, and several most respectable freeholders."** £85 post inclusive

LORD MOIRA. TOM SHERIDAN. The circumstance alluded to in this plate, is as follows. Lord Moira, who was then Governor of Edinburgh Castle, severely scolded his servant one morning for not calling him in time for review. The man excused himself on the plea that Mr. Tom Sheridan, his lordship's aidede-camp, never returned home till four or five o'clock in the morning, and that this was the cause of his oversleeping himself. Lord Moira desired him not to sit up that night, as he would open the door himself. Accordingly, when Sheridan knocked, his lordship opened it. Sheridan felt the rebuke, made many apologies, and promised to be more regular in future. Close cut right edgePublished by Hannah Humphrey in 1799 by James Gillray ** Hand Coloured.
