Robert Dighton

[Tilleman Bobart] The Classical Almamater Coachman, Oxford

8 x 11 inches

Etching in original hand colour, drawn and engraved by Robert Dighton and published in London in 1808.

A caricature of Tilleman Bobart who matriculated at University College in 1790 but never graduated, instead running a coach service between Oxford and London.

Robert Dighton (1752-1812) was one of the celebrated band of caricaturists working in London during the Regency. His beautifully hand coloured etchings, lampooning the great and good of the day, are considered amongst the best examples of his genre. Much of his work concentrated upon the colourful characters that thronged the crowded streets of Georgian London.
