Sir Barnes Newcome

Richard Doyle

Steel engraving by an unknown engraver

8¼ x 5¼ inches

W. M. Thackeray, The Newcomes, II, facing 263.

Sir Barnes manipulating his public. A typical audience of Doyle grotesques which implies the character's unwillingness to press the flesh; who would want to, faced with this sort of crowd?
