EDITORS COMMENTS
In this vintage engraving from 1806, titled "Visiting The Sick" we are transported back in time to witness a scene filled with historical figures and political tension. The central figure is Charles Fox, sitting in an armchair and clearly unwell. Surrounding him are various individuals who represent different factions and interests of the era. To one side of Fox sits Mrs. Fitzherbert, dressed as an abbess and holding a rosary, symbolizing her devout Catholicism. On the other side stands a bishop adorned in robes and mitre, representing the Church's influence on politics. In front of Fox, the Prince of Wales holds his handkerchief to his face, perhaps overcome by emotion or illness. Standing behind the bishop is Sheridan, who admonishes him about the impossibility of Catholic emancipation—an issue that divided society at that time. Meanwhile, Howick, Petty, Windham, and Moira appear distressed by the situation unfolding before them. Interestingly enough, Grenville and Sidmouth can be seen leaving the room with hopes that Fox will not recover—a testament to their opposing political views. As tensions rise within this historic setting captured through intricate engravement techniques reminiscent of traditional artistry; Mrs. Fox faints in her chair while Lord Derby attends to her needs. This nostalgic artwork provides us with a glimpse into history—where politics intertwine with personal relationships—and invites us to contemplate how these dynamics shaped society during that period.
