Example text

80 In this inaugural illustration, Satan stands between his two adversaries like James between William and Mary. 81 Aldrich’s achievement was to reinvent Milton’s iconoclastic pugnacity for the anti-Catholic consensus of 1688–9 and the ensuing Protestant succession,82 though this was an unstable iconographic victory. As the rise of caricature in the eighteenth century would show, the visual debunking of authority was to prove increasingly difficult to control. Once hatched, Milton’s monsters lived up to their prodigious reputation.

The Miltonic trope of monstrous and diabolical begetting was also popular among caricaturists. 112 Fox and Sheridan, both wearing bonnets rouges, are delighted spectators. In the manner of many caricatures, Newton lampoons both political extremes and leaves the viewer with no clear ideological standpoint. 113 Both these prints illustrate the longevity of Reformation and iconoclastic imagery in which political and religious corruption is pictured as (in Newton’s words) ‘nursed’ by the devil. What the ‘golden age’ of caricature reveals so graphically is that all the key visual elements of ‘Sin, Death and the Devil’ have a vigorous caricature afterlife in the Romantic period: a very large number of prints utilise the demonological iconography of devils, the mouth or ‘maw’ of Hell, the skeletal figures of Death and a large cast of ‘execrable’ monsters spawned by political zealots and tyrants alike.

21 Satan’s imminent escape from Hell could even be seen allegorically as a symbol of his bewitching impact on Romantic culture, while Sin’s muscular intervention gestures towards enlightened, compassionate, Wollstonecraftian feminism. Compared to this impressive array of sublime features, Gillray’s print might seem like an entertaining side-show or rumbustious frolic, an indulgence of ‘low’ pleasures more suited to the street and tavern than the gallery. In some respects this response would not be inaccurate: as Vic Gatrell has shown, caricature’s predilection for scatological and indecent effects derived from its roots in eighteenth-century satire.
