"The French Revolution provoked a deep response in Britain. This catalogue is the first to treat the events of the Revolution from 1789 to 1799 and the British reaction to it from the point of view of the visual images produced. Many of these representations are totally unknown and are of startling vividness. Changing reactions are charted in works of major artists from Blake's illuminated books and Gillray's satirical prints to Wedgwood medallions and gory waxworks from Madame Tussaud's. Despite the serious subject-matter many of the works are full of humour, for the age of Revolution was also the greatest age of British caricature." (back cover) The annotated catalogue presents 238 pieces, and most are pictured here as well. Uncommon. (Inventory #: 155782)
