The Marquis

The Marquis

Richard Doyle

Steel engraving by an unknown engraver

8¼ x 5¼ inches

W. M. Thackeray,The Newcomes, II, facing 78.

A burlesque scene which shows the Marquis stepping into a dance move. His ridiculous Scottish costume injects a note of levity at odds with Thackeray’s caustic prose.
