This talk with Joseph Monteyne, Ph.D., Associate Professor, History of Art, University of British Columbia examines a number of graphic satires produced in London during the second half of the 18th century depicting spectators gathered at the city’s print shop windows. A common theme of this genre is the realization by spectators that they see their own images in the array of prints displayed in the glass, and this causes them to react with pleasure, shame or anger.
