Discipline à la Kenyon - Hand Tinted Satirical Print 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.
Pubd March 25th 1797, by H. Humphrey New Bond Street, & St James s Streets'.
