Description

From the first of six volumes of caricatures published 1771-1773 by Mary Darly, an artist, engraver, and print-seller, one of the first professional caricaturists in England.

In mid-18th century England, a macaroni was the moniker for a young man who had been to Italy on the Grand Tour and returned to London dressed in high fashion. Darly and her husband Matthew owned a print shop in the fashionable West End known as the Macaroni Print-Shop.
