The Georgian era was a golden age of graphic satire, with events such as the South Sea Bubble, the Napoleonic Wars and the exploits of the Prince Regent fuelling the imaginations of some of the most biting satirists ever to etch a copper plate.

Drawing on material from the Institute’s Special Collections and Archives, this session will ask: what were the conditions that enabled these artists to flourish? What was the significance of the satirist during this period? How does subsequent satire draw upon the legacy of these artists?
