Prime Minister, William Pitt, looks up from his papers, as he sits by a table adorned with neat piles of letters, an ink stand, a pile of books and his robes of office. A curtain is hoisted up in a theatrical manner to reveal a view of the English landscape through the window beside him.
This work is a stipple engraving, made by a process which combines the art of engraving, with that of etching.
The original oil painting, from which this print was made, is in the collection of the Palace of Westminster in London.
