George III and his offspring were the butt of some of the finest and funniest of the late eighteenth century drawings. The best known of the Georgian satirists, James Gillray, used his great skills to savage his favourite cast of characters. No other artist could compare with him in terms of his sense of irony, his cultural understanding and the deadly accuracy of his abuse.
