A Party Angling and the Angler’s Repast, engravings after George Morland, 1789 via Donald Heald.
Y’all, those are some pretty amazing hats all around. If I didn’t have white guilt because of the presence of that poor slave, I would desperately want to recreate this whole scene.
More about Angling from Donald Heald:
“A pair of the most famous fishing prints after George Morland, the master of English genre painting.
During the eighteenth century punt fishing became a very fashionable sport, gentlemen and ladies gathered in droves to enjoy this popular outdoor pursuit. Morland was so struck with the charm of this pastime that he quickly rendered it on to canvas, thus creating two of his most cherished paintings. The two fashionable ladies pictured in the paintings are in fact Morland and Ward’s wives, while the gentlemen are John Raphael Smith and the engraver himself.”
