Davison - Yawning is Catching


Availability: In stock

Original antique medical print


William Davison of Alnwick (1781-1858) worked as both a printer and a pharmacist in Alnwick, Northumberland. In the period between 1812 and 1817, Davison produced a number of caricatures, amusing if somewhat crudely executed plates in the manner of Gilray, Rowlandson and Bunbury. In this instance, two men and a woman sit around a table yawning widely, with - in a nice example of product placement - a copy of Davison's list of his pharmacy products lies on the table. Slight foxing to left of sheet.
