Catching an elephant

Active selection in cart:
Catching an elephant. Two attractive and winsome damsels, standing outside a portal labelled 'Warm Baths,' have just succeeded in capturing an elderly colossus of a man, whose bulk should fairly entitle him to take his place amongst elephantine monsters ; the expression of his senile features is designed to carry out the resemblance. Artist: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827. Date: March 1, 1812. Sourced from Digital Commonwealth website.
