Mr James Gillray

Tom,
Of course, Professor Taylor’s expertise is not in history. Some proper historical context is required in order to de-code the more nuanced satirical comment in the prints. And the way they were consumed and perceived at the time they were published – whether for private or public pleasure – in the drawing room or through Hannah Humphrey’s shop window. Gillray was a celebrated satirist. See Wendy Hinde, Canning for his relationship with Pitt, the Pittites and – especially – Canning and Mr Gillray: The Caricaturist: (A Biography with 147 Illustrations), Draper Hill, 1965
