Integrity Retiring from Office! - A Historic Moment of Political Protest

EDITORS COMMENTS
This hand-colored engraving, titled "Integrity retiring from Office!, 1801, " captures a significant moment in British history. The print depicts the resignation of William Pitt the Younger, the Prime Minister at that time, in protest against King George III's rejection of bills aimed at uniting England and Ireland and emancipating Irish Catholics. The artist, James Gillray (1756-1815), masterfully conveys the political turmoil through his satirical cartoon. In this scene, we witness a procession led by Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1816), inciting a mob of tradesmen and workers who rally behind Pitt's self-sacrificial act. The illustration showcases various notable figures such as Henry Dundas, Charles James Fox, Lord Grenville, and Lord Loughborough among others. Their presence adds depth to this historical narrative while highlighting their roles in shaping Britain's political landscape during the Georgian era. Gillray's attention to detail is evident in every element within the image – from the declamatory pose of Pitt to the imposing figure of a grenadier sentry guarding an entrance gate. The composition also includes caricatures representing different societal classes like butchers, cobblers, and even a cobbler-turned-statesman named Tyrwhitt Jones. As viewers delve into this piece from Heritage Images' Historica Graphica Collection, they are transported back to an era characterized
