Abstract:
"George III sits on the throne (right) partly concealed (as in British Museum Satires No. 10709) by a pillar which supports the heavy draperies of a canopy. The Duke of York, wearing shirt, breeches, and boots, kneels before him, with bowed back, a handkerchief held to his face. Beside him and at the King's feet, are his military coat, hat, sword, and a paper: 'Resignation'. He says: "And he arose and went unto his Father, and said Father I have sinned before thee, and I am no longer worthy to be called thy Son". The King covers his face with his hand, saying, "Very Naughty Boy!-Very naughty Boy indeed!! however I forgive you but dont do so any more"."--British Museum online catalogue.
