A Spanking Dog Day & Real Melter in the Country

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a delightful and humorous 19th-century print that captures the essence of an English summer heatwave. Engraved by George Hunt and published by Thomas McLean in London, this colour lithograph showcases the satirical wit of the era. The scene depicts a plump, overweight female traveler struggling with swollen ankles as she traverses the picturesque English countryside. Her feet are adorned with bonnet-shaped shoes, adding to her comical appearance. Carrying a knapsack and holding an umbrella for shade, she epitomizes the challenges faced during scorching hot weather. The landscape itself exudes warmth, with vibrant colors depicting a sun-drenched day. The artist's attention to detail is evident in capturing both the physical discomfort experienced by our protagonist and the idyllic beauty of rural England. This caricature serves as social commentary on Georgian society's obsession with appearances while also poking fun at travelers who brave extreme weather conditions for leisurely pursuits. It invites viewers to reflect on their own experiences with oppressive heatwaves and find humor amidst discomfort. Part of The Stapleton Collection held privately, this charming artwork from Bridgeman Images provides us with a glimpse into 19th-century satire while reminding us that even on "A Spanking Dog Day" laughter can be found in unexpected places.
