|This is one of a series of satirical cartoons by Robert Cruikshank
(brother of George Cruikshank). It is a vivid example of the gross
caricatures made of Black people in the 18th century. Cruikshank portrays
the African as a devil with thick lips, and one of the 'devils'
is playing a fiddle - which could be an allusion to Billy Waters,
the Black busker and musician.
