A Caricature Group in Florence

Description
Patch, originally from Exeter, travelled in Italy in 1747 and settled in Florence in 1755. At that time, Florence was a key venue for the English gentry on the Grand Tour of Europe, and in this work Patch has satirised the attitudes of cultural tourists aspiring to be connoisseurs.
