FATIGUES OF THE CAMPAIGN IN FLANDERS

Js. Gy. desn. et fect.
Published May 20th 1793 by H. Humphrey
No. 18 Old Bond Street

An extensive and very interesting description of this scene, as well as curator's comments, can be found in the British Museum web site. The engraving portrays a staff dinner in an open tent. The Duke of York carouses with a Flemish woman on his knee while his left foot rests on a tattered British flag. Next to the Duke sits the Prince of Orange holding a tankard. Facing him an Austrian officer embraces the waist of a stout Flemish woman while drinking; on the right gaunt and emaciated British foot-guards carry wine-bottles, glasses, and a punch-bowl. In good used condition with minor toning and imperfections to frame as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: Frame 26" by 20.7" (67 cm by 52.5 cm); visible image 19.7" by 14" (50 cm by 35.5 cm) approximately.
