Description
[BMC 16024] British Museum online: The Duke of Cumberland kneels theatrically at the feet of Lady Graves who stands, leaning towards him. They declaim lines adapted from the balcony scene (II. ii): 'Oh C—d C—d wherefore art thou C—d? .... and I'll no longer be a G—.' He answers: 'I take thee at thy word.... and henceforth will be thine—.' They stand outside a stone building, inscribed 'Graves of the Capulets'. In a niche is a large urn inscribed 'Juliet. Ætat 13—'. Through an open door is seen a pile of coffins. In the foreground at their feet lie papers: 'Natural Affection a Farce'; 'Can a Woman forget her sucking Child'; 'Marriage Vows a Comic Opera'; 'Thou shall not Covet thy neighbours Wife'; BMC 16024 [Catalogue of prints and drawings in the British Museum: Division I, Political and personal satires.
