Hudibras Beats Sidrophel - Giclee Print - Old Maps and Prints - Oddities and Curiosities - Vintage Home Decor - Antique Hogarth Reproduction
Behold this engraving for Samuel Butler's 17th century mock heroic narrative poem "Hudibras". The work is a satirical polemic upon Roundheads, Puritans, Presbyterians and many of the other factions involved in the English Civil War, and tells the story of Sir Hudibras, a knight errant who is described dramatically and with laudatory praise that is so thickly applied as to be absurd, and the conceited and arrogant person is visible beneath. He is praised for his knowledge of logic despite appearing stupid throughout, but it is his religious fervor which is mainly attacked. Butler also uses the work to parody some of the dreadful poetry of the time.
The scene, titled "Hudibras Beats Sidrophel and His Man Wacum", illustrated by the infamous William Hogarth, depicts Hudibras confronting the astrologer Sidrophel in an apothecary's laboratory; from the ceiling and wall hang a stuffed crocodile, swordfish, turtle and other creatures; to left, a cupboard door is open to reveal a skeleton with an owl on its shoulder; on the floor, are a glass jar containing a homunculus or fetus, a globe, various scientific instruments, a cat, and a mouse-trap.
This image has been digitally retouched and repaired as necessary, while leaving the foxing, wear, and creases that lend to the intrigue of these old works. This giclee quality art is printed on heavyweight matte archival / acid-free museum quality stock with lightfast inks rated 100+ years. No watermark will appear on your print. The artwork is printed with a surrounding white margin (included in print size) to aid in framing/matting the print. Your purchase will ship priority mail (US) in a protective kraft tube made from 70-100% post-consumer recycled content and up to 30% secondary recycled content.
Given the nature of vintage artwork created before the standardization of print and frame sizes, this item may not conform exactly to the dimensions you choose. To allow for the odd sizing of these images they are printed approximately 2 inches smaller than the paper they are on. This way you receive a standard size, with a white surrounding border that allows for easy framing, with or without a matte.
