DAMN MAMBRINO -- MT Bunbury del. J" Brethertonf. [c. 1770] -- The etched satirical caricature portrait of a man seated in a chair, looking with great wrath and disgust to his left, grasping his stick with one hand, and clenching his fist on his knee with the other. He is gouty; his face is puffed with wrath and anger. He has not missed a meal. A dog squats timidly at his knee hoping he is not the cause of the anger. Mambrino was the name of a racehorse. The person represented here had doubtless lost money on a race. This plate is No. 4731. A rare and highly collectible item.
