About This Item

: , 1812. The Bear, The Bull Dog and The Monkey

HEATH, William, (after). The Bear the Bull Dog and the Monkey.

Pen and ink with watercolor on wove paper, (16 3/8 x 11 1/2 inches; 415 x 291 mm.).

Original artwork after the published etching from August of 1812. The first image of the Russian campaign which commenced in late June, Napoleon as half-ape, gripped by the Russian bear and savaged by the bulldog, named on its collar as Wellington, manuscript verse below.

"Dame Mischief may say "spare my Monkey good Sirs
But I'll tell you what's best to be done
The Villain delights in such mischievous stirs
That 'tis wisest to stop all his fun

So Bruin & Growler each play your part
And worry this troublesome Blade,
Then Peace shall again delight evr'y Heart
And the Rogue will be robbed of his Trade"

[c.f. BM Satires 11896], c.1812.
