Exhibition Stare Case Print
France, c. 1885
14 x 11 in (36 x 28 cm)
Amazing staircase, that this one, out of the powerful imagination of Rowlandson, one of the masters of the most buxom and the most catchy laughter of all times. Very busy palace staircase, palace of a great thief crowded with solicitors, or even a museum, teeming with curious people.
This print of Thomas Rowlandson's 1811 "Exhibition Stare Case" analyzes the purpose of the work. In short, it is meant to ridicule London's upper-class art scene.
