English caricature by William Hogarth, 19th century impression.
DESCRIPTION

Details

The setting is the west side of Covent Garden piazza on a winter's morning. On the right vegetable and fruit-sellers and market-stall holders are preparing for the day, while a fight has broken out in Tom King's coffee house on the left with someone's wig flying out of the door. Two aristocratic rakes are fondling and kissing young market girls. They are observed by a well-dressed woman, who pauses on her way to church. Her shivering footboy, his nose bright red from the cold, follows her holding a prayer book. Waterstain outside the platemark.
