Johannes Eckstein (active 1770-1802) created this beautiful work of pen and ink and watercolor in 1798. This highly detailed image shows us a crowd engaged by a Punch and Judy show.
Look at Mr. Punch. Isn’t he just adorable? This would have been a wooden relative of the Punchinello famously recorded nearly twenty years later by George Cruikshank.
Today, this image is part of The Royal Collection.
