About this work

Description

In the top scene, three men in a variety of dress stand arm in arm with a woman wearing a feather in her hat. They appear to be amused by the commotion next to them in which one man falls over pushing another man's head away as another grabs his legs from beneath. Under the arm of one of the men who attempt to escape is a paper inscribed 'usef(ul) knowledge'. The scene is subtitled 'Oblivion' bottom right. The bottom scene depicts a gentleman with his leg raised mid-dance, a woman with her hands on her hips and a man in army uniform and sword. They all sing as they dance. A ball with head and arms and inscribed 'John Bull' appears to be kicked into the air by the dancers. On John Bull and the Whig cause in parliament
