DR. SYNTAX AQUATINIT ENGRAVINGS, 1812-1821
Thomas Rowlandson, one of England’s premier caricaturists, illustrated all three Dr. Syntax adventures. The quilt combines elements from these eleven prints, which are just a selection of the first tour’s illustrations. Some illustrations lent just a small detail or background figure to the toile fabric design, other figures are more prominent.
