Painting by William Hogarth, ca. 1755; original title: "An Election Entertainment", from the series known as "The Humours of an Election" or (when engraved) "Four Prints of an Election".
Includes famous "Give us our Eleven days" protest slogan against Gregorian calendar at lower right (on black sheet on floor).
According to Hogarth: A Life and a World by Jenny Uglow, this was loosely based on the 1754 Oxfordshire elections, in which the 1752 calendar change was one of a number of issues brought up by Tory opponents to the Whig candidate for MP (the son of George Parker, 2nd Earl of Macclesfield, who had been influential in passing the calendar law). The painting shows a Whig banquet, and "Give us our Eleven Days" is a stolen Tory campaign banner.
