Active selection in cart:
Witches in a hay loft. Two witches of orthodox type, with broomsticks, red cloaks, and steeple-crowned hats, are seated at a cauldron, working incantations, to assist at which serpents, hobgoblins, and various weird monsters are conjured up. A rustic clown, with a lantern and hayfork, who has thrown back the trapdoor, and is ascending to the hayloft for some purpose, is paralysed with horror and affright at the unholy spectacle suddenly revealed to his sight. Artist/Etcher: Woodward, G. M. (George Moutard), approximately 1760-1809; Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827. Date: April 29, 1807. Sourced from Digital Commonwealth website.
