§ Probably an early proof. Satirical portrait of a stout gentleman on horseback, unsigned but likely by James Gillray. Hannah Humphrey was the sister of engraver William Humphrey. She began to publish prints in the 1770s and she established a print shop in London in around 1779. In 1791, the renowned satirist, James Gillray, began to work exclusively for Humphrey, making her London's leading seller of caricature prints. They continued to live and work together for another 20 years. Item #108220
