Product details Caricature of Cromwell Mortimer

Caricature of Cromwell Mortimer


Interior scene in which Cromwell Mortimer (1693-1752) dozes at a table while a fool holds a peacock feather above his head. Although anonymous, the identity of this satirical study is clear from the twin portraits on the wall behind, labelled "Cromwell" and "Mortimer". Various books are shelved behind, including "Sr I: Newton no Philosopher" and "on the Itch". Other volumes by scientists are scattered on the floor: "Barrow", "Boyle" etc., and Mortimer's foot rests on "Newton". On the table is an owl holding an inkwell in its beak and illustrated papers marked "Phi.Tran" [Mortimer edited the Royal Society's Philosophical Transactions] "on Buggs" and "Arbot vitae". The print has been trimmed, removing part of the original title coupletfrom the top: "Here Folly, Ignorance, and Pride, Combine, To prove Him of the true Duncean Line."

Original: engraving. ca. 1745
