English: Advantages of wearing Muslin Dresses ! — dedicated to the serious attention of the Fashionable Ladies of Great Britain
Js. Gillray, inv: & ft.
SUMMARY: A fat lady, sitting with a man and woman at a tea table, reacts in horror as a hot poker from the fire falls on her dress and sets it on fire. The man sits helplessly while the second woman upsets the table in her alarm. A butler, entering the room, drops a plate of muffins, and a cat scampers away from the fire. A painting of Mt. Vesuvius hangs over the fireplace.
MEDIUM: 1 print: etching, hand-colored.
CREATED/PUBLISHED: [London] : H. Humphrey, 1802 Feby 15th.According to Wright & Evans, Historical and Descriptive Account of the Caricatures of James Gillray (1851, OCLC 59510372), p. 466, "Muslin dresses had become very fashionable at the period when this caricature was published, and several disastrous results of accidental ignition gave to this print a peculiar air of truthfulness. It may be that those interested in the print trade encouraged the production of what was likely to remove prestige from its rival."
