Summary:
This book marks the rediscovery, in the bicentenary year of his death in 1798, of a master of the burlesque, the caricaturist Richard Newton, who was soon forgotten, in part because of the bawdy nature of many of his prints. From the age of fourteen until his early death at twenty-one, this young Londoner etched a stream of hilarious satires of royalty, politicians, greedy churchmen, actresses and courtesans.

Abstract:

This book marks the rediscovery, in the bicentenary year of his death in 1798, of a master of the burlesque, the caricaturist Richard Newton, who was soon forgotten, in part because of the bawdy nature of many of his prints. From the age of fourteen until his early death at twenty-one, this young Londoner etched a stream of hilarious satires of royalty, politicians, greedy churchmen, actresses and courtesans.

Most of his prints were published by William Holland, a man of literary tastes who wrote the clever dialogues on many of the prints; some of Newton's most fascinating prints are those of Holland and fellow prisoners in Newgate where Holland was imprisoned for his radical activities in 1793-4. The book contains a checklist of three hundred single sheet prints by Newton; sixty are illustrated in colour, together with four of his watercolours.
