Enter Cowslip, with a bowl of cream

Active selection in cart:
Enter Cowslip, with a bowl of cream. An enormously fat lady stands in profile to the left, holding a bowl (resembling a punch-bowl), her left hand on her hip, holding up the frilled apron which drapes her quilted petticoat. She wears ringlets with a small ribbon-trimmed straw hat poised on the side of her head. Her girth is accentuated by her quasi-peasant costume, with laced bodice, and flowered over-dress looped up in festoons, giving her a globular contour (BM). / Lady Buckinghamshire in the character of Cowslip, which she performed in the private theatricals at Brandenburgh House (Wright/Evans). Artist: Gillray, James, 1756-1815. Date: June 13, 1795. Sourced from Digital Commonwealth website.
