John Wilkes, Esq., Etching and Engraving, First State of Two

Date/Period: May 16, 1763 - SOLD


John Wilkes, Esq., Etching and Engraving, First State of Two, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 16.5" x 21.75"; view: 17.5" x 12.25"

Material: Etching on laid paper

Additional Information: Caricatural portrait of John Wilkes holding the cap of Liberty.
Wilkes, British radical journalist and politician, a magistrate, essayist, and soldier, was
widely admired in the American colonies as a political journalist, a radical politician, and
a fighter for liberty…and supporter of American rebels. Wilkes was a champion of
individual liberty against the power of the state. Hogarth, an ardent royalist, did not like
him. Wilkes known to be one of the ugliest men of his day, he stated that “it took him
only half an hour to talk away his face and win over the listener”
. Hogarth did not
overstate his image to satirize the man. The engraving, one of Hogarth's last,
displeased many and won him few friends. Wilkes did not take great offence.
