Original hand- colouring etching by John Phillips pseudonym Sharpshooter.London, G. Humphrey dated May 6th 1831.

In the centre Henry Brougham, in his Chancellors Robes and wig over a pair of inappropriate black and white checked trousers, and has a small red bonnet perched on his wig, rides piggyback on the shoulders of a stooping King William IV, who wears the the blue jacket and white duck trousers of a sailor.
With one hand Brougham has plucked off the King's crown, which he throws down behind them, while with the other he places a large cockaded red bonnet on the King's head.
A reference to Brougham's part in compelling the King to dissolve Parliament in person, during the crisis attending the Great Reform Bill in March - April 1831.
Brougham is here derided as a radical, with the reference to the "Mountain" group of Jacobins in the revolutionary French convention.

Condition is good and has been tastefully re-framed, It has a little foxing.
