George Cruikshank "Mushroom Monstrosities" Hand Colored Print from 1835
A great hand colored print by Scottish illustrator and satirist George Cruikshank, (1792–1878).
Titled " Mushroom Monstrosities" this caricature of upper class children playing in the field makes a comment on the current fashion of oversized hats and the notion of ridiculous societal trends. The print itself dates back to 1835 and has the artist's signature in the lower left hand corner. The print is 5 inches by 6 1/2 inches and it has been archivally mounted. The frame is hand painted and gold enameled, with a few worn edges, but it is nice condition for its age. The framed piece measures 11 by 13 inches. Published in 1835 by Thomas McLean
