Cow-pock, or, The wonderful effects of the new inoculation! [graphic] / Js. Gillray del. & ft.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "A scene in a vaccine institution; poor patients crowd in through a doorway on the left; in the room are those whose treatment has had dire consequences. A comely and frightened young woman sits in an armchair in the centre, the doctor (Jenner, a good portrait, see BMSat 9925) holds her right arm and gashes it with his knife, while a deformed and ragged boy holds up a bucket of 'Vaccine Pock hot from ye Cow'. A charity-schoolboy's oval badge on his sleeve is inscribed 'St Pancras'; from his coat pocket projects a pamphlet: 'Benefits of the Vaccine Process'. From the patients miniature cows sprout or leap. A pregnant woman (right) stands in profile to the right, a cow issues from her mouth, another from below her ragged petticoat. A man dressed as a butcher registers despair at the horns which sprout from his forehead. A labourer with a pitchfork sees a cow bursting from a swelling on his arm while another breaks through his breeches; cows struggle through huge swellings on nose, ear, and cheek. Another patient has only reached the stage of large carbuncles on forehead and chin. The doctor's medicine-chest and a close-stool stand on the left. On the chest are bottles, a syringe, &c, and a tub of 'Opening Mixture'. This a haughty assistant ladles contemptuously into the mouths of the patients as they crowd into the room. On the wall is a picture: a crowd of kneeling worshippers pay homage to the statue of the golden calf. The scene combines fantasy and realism."--British Museum online catalogue.

Pic-Nic orchestra [graphic] / Js. Gillray inv. & ft.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Musicians are grouped round the almost spherical Lady Buckinghamshire, who sits at the piano in profile to the right, playing and singing. In back view and on the extreme right sits Colonel Greville, playing a fiddle; from his coat pocket hangs a paper: 'Pic Nic Concert - Imitations - Nightingale by Lord C. - Tom Tit Lord ME. - Jack daw Genl G. Screech Owl Lady B. - Poll Parrot...' On the left is Lord Mount Edgcumbe, very small, playing a 'cello, in profile. Behind him, full face, towers Lord Cholmondeley putting a flute below tightly closed lips. Seated on the pianist's left is Lady Salisbury, blowing a French horn. On the extreme right opposite Greville is a lady's arm holding out a trumpet. See BMSat 9916, &c, and, for the 'musical mania' of the period, BMSat 9938, &c."--British Museum online catalogue.
