Four Secret Hidden Silhouettes of George III, Louis XVI and Their Wives

Four Secret Hidden Silhouettes of George III, Louis XVI and Their Wives

This very interesting little engraving was produced in Germany in the early 1790’s. It appears to be a German commentary on the French revolution and the Hanoverian royal family of England. Louis and Marie are entwined with snakes devouring the French fleur-de-lis. George and Charlotte are surmounted by a glowing crown.

The image itself measures 3.5 x 4.75

In a 19th century walnut frame.
