Abstract:
Depicts Burke wearing spectacles and wig, but in monastic habit as an Irish Jesuit. He is seated on a stool peeling a potato, at a table on which is a chamber pot full of steaming potatoes, and at the other end a keg of whisky supporting a broken crucifix. Beneath the table dance 3 demons. A reference to Burke's resignation after the death of Rockingham, and to his support of the Catholic Relief Act.
