Creator Biography

Thomas Rowlandson, British, born in Old Jewry, London, England, 1757-1827.

Description

Cartoonish figures wreak havoc in a bookshop. An older man in black confronts a large, rotund man about a book, while a man on a stool facing the bookshelves that line the walls flings several books into the air. At the foot of the stool, a bystander cowers as the books fall; a large woman drinks at a table in the nook in the lefthand corner of the composition.
