  • Gillray collection

    The British artist, James Gillray (1756-1815), was the leading force in what has become known as the golden age of British caricature, approximately 1770 to 1820. Gillray chronicled and ridiculed the politicians and ruling class of his day, in spectacularly hand-colored prints. This graphic arts collection includes nearly 335 prints, all given by Dickson Q. Brown, class of 1895.  Explore the Gillray collection in the Princeton University Digital Library.
