Footman [graphic] / Woodward del. ; etched by Rowlandson.

Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "A foppish footman (left) wearing a cutaway livery coat with pantaloons, bunch of seals, and other fashionable trappings, holds a nosegay, admiring himself in a wall-mirror: "This I think will strike the Female Villager, the dear smiling rogues will never be able to resist the little Jenny Seequy of my dress and manners." An ape on a chain (right) seems to imitate his pose. Two country servants (right) gaze angrily at him: a footman (right) says: "Nan did'st ever see such a conceited Monkey! old Jack the Baboon is a fool to urn!!" She says: "The house will be turned topsy turvy by these Lunneners."--British Museum online catalogue.
