Thomas Rowlandson

Study for The Covent Garden Night Mare (1784)

This is the original drawing by Rowlandson for his caricature print, ‘The Covent Garden Night Mare’. Rowlandson has based his design on Fuseli’s The Nightmare. He may have seen the painting at the Royal Academy exhibition in 1782, or copied it from a printed reproduction.
