I.Cruickshank
Isaac Cruickshank

He moved from Scotland to London in 1784 and became one of the leading caricaturists, though not held in the same esteem as Gillray or Rowlandson; much of his work is of the highest quality and is much collected. His long career saw him produce both political and social images of high quality.
He was the father of George and Robert, (I. R. Cruikshank), and taught them both to etch.

With cruel gall your gentle bosoms fill –
Whether you chuse the pencils power to vex,
Or self important, scorn your own weak sex;
Or by your fancied Wit gain Men’s applause,
Or shew your symmetry thro shades of gauze
Accept this humble tribute – Cut for Cut,
Ye previous Satyrists of Lilliput!”
