About this Item

A Reconciliation? Doyle, John [1797-1868]. A Broad Hint. [London]: Published by S. Gans, [1829]. 14" x 11" hand-colored lithograph in 16-1/2" x 19" hinged matte. Light soiling to matte, some toning to margins, a few miniscule spots to image, colors vivid. $350. * Doyle moved English caricature from the ridiculous, grotesque and sometimes bawdy style of Thomas Rowlandson and James Gillray to the more witty and genteel manner developed further by later cartoonists, such as those associated with Vanity Fair. Doyle's pictures appeared anonymously in the London Times and a series of books, Political Sketches, between 1830 and 1851 under the signature H.B. They were commentaries on recent events and were sometimes accompanied by explanatory essays. A Broad Hint depicts the Duke of Wellington, then Prime Minister, Lord Chancellor Lyndhurst and Lord Brougham, then a leading member of the House of Commons who advocated legal reform and education of the poor, causes Wellington opposed. Doyle satirizes the opposition between these two men in the guise of a reconciliation managed by Lyndhurst. This is a re-strike of a plate issued by T. McLean, July 18, 1829.
