DescriptionSatire on the antagonism between William Hogarth and Charles Churchill arising from the North Briton, No.17 in which, as a response to Hogarth’s print “The Times Plate 1″ supporting the Peace of Paris, John Wilkes wrote:”The post of portrait-painter [to the King] is given to a Scotsman, one Ramsey, Mr Hogarth is only to paint the wainscot of the rooms, or, in the phrase of the art, may be called their pannel-painter”. On the left is shown a blank “Pannel Painting” in front of which Hogarth, shown as his pug dog with his fore paws on a palette with the “Liner of Beauty”, confronts a large bear (Churchill) who stands on his “Epistle to Wm. Hogarth July 1763”.
