This mounted print is based on Richard Newton’s satirical print from 1798 titled "Treason!!!". A stout Mr Bull, artisan or labourer, capers with hands on hips. He directs a blast from his posteriors at a print of the King's head which is pinned to a wall. The King, in profile to the left, looks with angry astonishment at his assailant, and the impression is of a (caricatured) head looking through a window. Bull, with a grin, looks sideways at the print. Pitt's head, much caricatured, projects in profile from the left margin, shouting in dismay: 'That is Treason Johnny'

A print of the original work can be found in the Museum's collection, read more here..
