A Whimsical Will!!
1807. Woodward, George Moutard [1760-c.1809], After. [Charles Williams (1797-1830), Etcher]. A Whimsical Will!! London: Published by Thomas Tegg, October 4, 1807. Attractively glazed and matted 13" x 9-1/4" colored etching in handsome 18" x 14" wooden frame, small brass plaque to center of bottom. A few tiny nicks to frame, light toning to margins, image vivid. An attractive piece. * A fine example of Regency-era humor, this print depicts the reading of the will of Thomas Whimsey, Esq., in a solicitor's office. Whimsey has the final word as he rewards, punishes and otherwise upbraids his beneficiaries. Woodward was a noted caricaturist active in London who produced drawings for printmakers. Williams was a prolific etcher of satires, both his and those of others, especially Woodward.
