Dissecting room [graphic] : from the original by Rowlandson in the possession of William Tiffin Iliff, Esqre. / T.C. Wilson lith.

Author: Wilson, T. C. active 1837-1841,
Description: "A realistic study, touched with satire. Two bodies are being dissected. Two men (seated) are at work on the body which forms the centre of the design. Behind the trestle-table the lecturer, wearing dark spectacles, stands, pointing down; round him are grouped students who listen and watch. On the right a man sits with his back to the room, dissecting. An elderly surgeon stands over him chapeau-bras, inspecting the work through an eyeglass. In the foreground (left) a body lying half in a box is being disembowelled by an elderly man who kneels on the ground. He and the anatomists wear aprons and oversleeves. The room has a slightly sloping roof, with a skylight running along its left side. On the right wall in the foreground hangtwo skeletons; in the background (right) a third stands in profile to the left, as if grinning at the scene. The skeleton of a dog (?) hangs from the roof. A bust on a bracket (right) looks down cynically. Two posters are on the right wall: 'Rules to be observed by those Gentlemen who Dissect in -' and 'Prices for Bodys Male Subject - Female Do - Infant -'."--British Museum online catalogue.

Double humbug, or, The devils imp praying for peace [graphic] / Rowlandson del.

John Bull (Symbolic character) Caricatures and cartoons.
Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "A design in two compartments, separated by a vertical line. [1] Napoleon stands on the dais in front of a chair of state addressing rows of (burlesqued) Senators and Deputies, who listen with hostility and scepticism; some close their eyes, two take snuff. The Devil, a winged monster, clutches the back of Napoleon's chair, and leans towards him like a gargoyle-bird of prey, inspiring the speech. The dais is supported on crowns of varying patterns. The Emperor is in profile to the left, extending both arms in a propitiatory gesture; he wears plain military uniform with boots. His words are in a large label across the design ... This label hides the upper part of two pictures on the wall: a battle-piece (left), and (above Napoleon's head) '20 Flags Presented to the Empress': tiny obsequious figures present the flags, see British Museum Satires No. 12111, &c. [2] Napoleon, in profile to the right, kneels abjectly before the Allies, presenting to them a collection of crowns, including the Pope's tiara, and a sheaf of flags; these are on the ground with his cocked hat and sword; he keeps one crown tucked under his right arm. The Allies stand menacingly on the right. They are (left to right): John Bull, a fat 'cit' pugnaciously clenching his fists; a morose-looking Spaniard; a Cossack, his right hand on his sabre; an (?) Austrian officer, his sword in his left hand, and on the extreme right a Dutchman in bulky breeches, with a long pipe in his mouth. Other heads are indicated behind. Napoleon's words are in a large label ... Behind Napoleon is Talleyrand supported on a crutch; he leans forward obsequiously, saying, "What my Master has said is true So help me G--d Amen"."--British Museum online catalogue.

Death and Bonaparte [graphic] / T. Rowlandson delt.

Description: "A skeleton, Death (left), seated on a cannon, his elbows on his knees, faces Napoleon, not caricatured, in a similar attitude on a drum. The 'two Kings' gaze fixedly at each other, Death menacing, Napoleon as if trying to read a terrifying riddle. Death's left foot rests on a cannon-ball, the right on the broken shaft of an eagle. Behind is a symbolical representation of the battle. The Allies advance from the left in regular formation with bayonets levelled at fleeing French soldiers. Four flags, with the eagles of Russia, Prussia, and Austria, and the Swedish cross, are held up by standard-bearers in the third rank: they recede in perspective from left to right. On the left wing are two hussars, riding down the fugitives. The main French army is streaming in wild confusion up and over a hill, diminishing in perspective. Other soldiers, pursued by hussars, flee down a hill behind Napoleon (right). Bodies of Frenchmen lie on the ground."--British Museum online catalogue, description of an earlier state.
