In Collection: Collection of caricatures, mainly set in Dublin
Description: Lettered with title underneath image, "Dandy’s Toilette. The Patch” with publication line underneath: "Publish'd by Mc Cleary 32 Nassau Street Dublin” and lower right, within plate mark "Plate 3". Social satire featuring the depiction of a young man (the dandy of the title), being assisted by his manservant (who stands immediately behind him), holding a jacket of bright blue material with gold buttons while his master, holding a small box labelled ‘Patches’, looks into the mirror of the dressing table in front of him and applies a patch to his face, while admiring his own reflection. He wears a voluminous pair of trousers of green coloured cloth, tight narrow black boots with spurs, a waistcoat of yellow silk, a white shirt with a very high, stiff collar and a neck kerchief of white material with red coloured spots. A monocle hangs on a chain around his neck [and what appears to be a fob watch from his waist]. On the dressing table are various bottles - one labelled ‘Bloom water’, another (just seen) labelled ‘Rose Water’; two brushes, pieces of linen, several pieces of paper, a pair of red braces and a small volume entitled ‘Charms of the Patch’. A chair next to the dressing table has a bicorne hat on it, [what appears to be] a telescope, a book and a small miniature of a young woman rests on top of this volume. Discarded on the floor is an elastic collar. A walking stick lies across a closed trunk in the far corner. A top hat lies on a table in the background; adjacent to this a jug and bowl sit on another piece of furniture. Above this, pair of stays hangs from the wall. A framed print on the wall, entitled ‘Progress of the Toilet’, depicts a maid assisting her mistress in dressing, tightening her stays. Her mistresses looks into the mirror in front of her as she does so. Hanging on the wall in the background of the room they are in, is a print of a striding man, wearing a bicorne hat and holding a walking stick; this print [within a print] has the title ‘Dandy’ printed within the image.
