Lady Pellice and Mr. Muff

After H. J. British
Publisher Matthias Darly British

Not on view

Matthew and Mary Darly encouraged the growth of British satire from their shop at 39 Strand, London. They printed and published many designs brought to them by amateurs and the "M.J." who created this image probably was one. A fashion satire, it shows a man and woman in conversation outside with both figures holding muffs and the lady wearing a fur-lined cloak, suggestive of winter. Both figures also wear wigs with large side curls, typical of the 1770s.
