Robert Cruikshank after W. H. Pyne
Jumping in Sacks
20.5 x 16.5 inches
A hand-coloured etching by Cruikshank and George Hunt after Pyne; published in London in 1825.
A delightfully English scene is depicted here as a bunch of country bumpkins compete in a sack race to the amusement of their more well-to-do neighbours. At this precise moment two of the numptys have taken a tumble whilst a debonair army officer smokes his pipe and chuckles at the scene.
