Description: After George Cruikshank's 'Dos à dos -Accidents in quadrille dancing', published 4 March 1817 by Hannah Humphrey, 27 St James's Street, London; see British Museum number 1859,0316.128. This print lettered with title "Dos a' Dos - Accidents in Quadrille Dancing" and publication line "Pub'd by McCleary, Nassau St., Dublin". Cropped within plate mark. Two sets of four couples are depicted in position for a quadrille on a boarded floor; in the left foreground a lady curtseys, while a man bends forward, their bottoms colliding - she is displeased while everyone else appears amused. The women wear high-waisted Empire-style dresses, that finish slightly below the knee; the men wear coats with narrow tails and tight pantaloons or knee-breeches with the man in the right foreground, (who is seen from behind) wearing loose trousers. Two violinists are depicted playing in the right background. A gas chandelier hangs from the ceiling, the jets issuing from a hoop.
