Barbers shop [graphic] / T. Rowlandson fecit.

Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,
Description: "The interior of a barber's shop. A very old and completely bald man reclines in an arm-chair (left), a cloth over his shoulders; a fat barber is about to place on his head a tie-wig. On the ground at his side lies a wig with a long pigtail queue which is being befouled by a dog. Behind, on a tall stand, is a barber's block fitted with a small wig. The barber's assistant, a lean man wearing spectacles and an apron, fits a small wig on the head of a stout man, who stands in profile to the right, his hand in his coat-pocket. On the right is a lattice window in three divisions; a man sits in a chair facing the window. Wigs are hung up in the window. On a high shelf (left) are round wig-boxes. Next the shelf is nailed up a print of Absalom hanging from a tree, while his horse gallops away. ... The ceiling is raftered."--British Museum online catalogue, description of original issue.
