    About

    A print of a satire dated to 1779 called 'The feather'd fair in a fright', by an anonymous artist after John Collet. Extravagant ostrich feathers, some as long as three feet, were the height of fashion in the 1770s, but how did the ostriches feel about it? The two young women in this satirical print are servants who are punished for borrowing their mistresses' finery. But the print points out that if they are truly to return the borrowed feathers (as written in the subtitle) they should return them to their original owners. The trend, started by leader of fashion Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, attracted a surprising degree of criticism, but the printmakers who produced huge numbers of fashion satires in the 1700s often seem to admire their attractive subjects as much as hold them up to ridicule.
