DESCRIPTION

Discipline à la Kenyon - Hand Tinted Satirical Print by James Gillray, 1797
Lord Kenyon (left), in wig and robes, flogs with great vigour the scarred back of Lady Buckinghamshire, whose wrists are tied to the back of a cart. He has a scourge in the right hand, a birch-rod in the left; from his pocket issues a paper: 'Laws against Gambling'. His head is in back view. His fat victim wears a feathered turban and fashionably dressed hair; her profile and gestures.
Published March 25th 1797, by H. Humphrey New Bond Street, & St James s Streets'.
