Gillray (James, 1757-1815) A superb drawing, double-sided, from the early period of his madness, 1811-1812, 8 5/8 x 10 3/4 inches, 219 x 272 mm. Recto: brown pen & ink & gray wash, a nude man crawls on all fours: he is tormented by sprites with long ears, five are in the foreground, another blows a trumpet at the man's forehead, another sits astride his head (this figure is related to Fuseli's painting of Hamlet's father which Gillray parodied in his attack on the Boydell Gallery in 1789 (Shakespeare sacrificed), see Wright & Evans No. 380. Another figure, with sword, on the man's back, recalls Fuseli's Hoplite. A nude young angel with legs spread out, arns pointing, is Blake-like: in the sky is a half-hidden moon & a four-winged sprite. Verso: brown pen & ink for all figures but on. Including a Michelangeloesque winged man, perhaps Icarus which G. used in his 1807 caricature (Evans & Wright 334): nude buttocks & thighs of a man flying from the artist may also be a memory of the Lord Buckingham which he used in the same caricature. The only pencil sketch on this sheet is a head which is not unlike a self-portrait of the artist. I am indebted to Mr. Draper Hill, the Gillray specialist, for much of the above information: the attribution to Gillray was also confirmed by the British Museum & by Mr. L. G. Duke who also owns a Gillray in this Fuseli style, from the same 1811 period. £90 292. Gillray (J., see above) Another drawing, from the same period. "The Wild Hunter." Thick pen & brown ink & gray & brown wash, 10 1/3 x 9 1/2 inches, 262 x 240 mm. At the edge of a forest a nude hunter, loins draped, with curved bow & arrow, rushes, with one foot poised & bow taut, towards his prey, a boy with quiver follows him, eager hounds run beside the hunter. This is an extraordinarily impressive document of madness. £85 293. Grant (Sir Francis, P.R.A., of Kilgratson, 1803-1878) A fine collection of his drawings, from the Lady Gilmour collection at The Inch, Craigmillar:— 1) Horse & rider splendidly crossing a water-jump in open country 7 x 9 inches, 181 x 225 mm., pen and ink. £20 (2) Rider takes a bad fall at a 5-barred gate, pen & ink. 7 1/4 x 9 inches, 182 x 226 mm. £15 Continued on next page.
