Summary

Drawing shows the head of a monster with crossed horns, two nude men balancing on their hands on the backs of dragon-like animals, and a female acrobat, standing on her hands, holding a vessel in her toes and handing it to a seated woman. Rowlandson was an artist, illustrator, and caricaturist, sometimes accused of being "coarse and indelicate."
