Synopsis

George IV was a popular target for satirical printmakers who ridiculed him throughout his life in brilliantly inventive and colourful etchings. Exhibition curator and Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings, Kate Heard, explores satires of George, his reaction to criticism and his own collection, and asks where he drew the line between humour and offence.
