Lovely Ladies

Sometimes, the caricatures were not aimed at a specific person but at the entire court or a fraction within it. This particular caricature show the toilette of the "nymphs" of Versailles - nymphs with huge noses and legs as big as a tree trunk!

The caricature was printed in England in 1792 probably after Cruikshank's design.
