Description
[BMC 8705] British Museum online: Pitt (left) and Fox face each other, their heads in profile. Pitt's face, hair, and elegant riding-dress are spattered with mud; he holds a hat and switch, and stands with bent knees, saying, "These are the Blessed effects of Your Patriotism, & be D------to you." Fox, neatly dressed and very fat, holding his hands to his chest, grins broadly, saying: "Why dost thou shake thy Dirty Locks at me? Thou canst not say I did it - Muddy Banquo!"......A satire on Pitt's unpopularity, owing to dearth and military failure, and to repressive measures which were violently opposed by the Opposition.; BMC 8705 [British Museum Dept. of Prints and Drawings. Catalogue of prints and drawings in the British Museum: Division I, Political and personal satires. London: Printed by order of the Trustees, 1870-1954.]
