Cartoon, The Great Balloon Featured Print

Cartoon, The Great Balloon

Cartoon, The Great Balloon, by James Gillray. A satirical comment on the subject of Lord Grenville's installation as Chancellor of Oxford University. The balloon is depicted as a fat man with hot air (labelled Promises) escaping from behind. The installation (3 July 1810) followed a divisive election in which Lord Eldon opposed Lord Grenville on political and religious grounds. Opponents like Gillray saw Grenvilles installation as a triumph for Catholic Emancipation. Faces in the crowd include political figures: Buckingham, Stafford, M.A. Taylor, Erskine, Tierney, Holland, Grey, Sidmouth, Cholmondeley, Whitbread, Watkin Williams-Wynn, Fingall and Sheridan. Date: 1810
