An Extraordinary Eclipse : T. Rowlandson / T. Tegg

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A satirical cartoon depicting dignitaries in India watching the planet "Public Disapprobation" eclipse Lord Hastings, represented by a garter star. "Fort William" in the background identifies the setting as Calcutta. Those watching are probably officials of the Madras Presidency. A Judge with ass' ears, identified by the copy of Burns Justice in his pocket, references the duration of the eclipse and sightings in Kensington and Westminster. This is an allusion to Lord Hastings' part in the "Delicate Investigation" into the alleged infidelities of Caroline of Brunswick; in 1813 he was alleged to have brought perjured evidence against her. A civilian hopes that the eclipse will not affect the harvest; a military man with a sextant hopes that other reputations will not be damaged by the scandal. Published by Thomas Tegg in Cheapside, 1st November 1815.
