Jonny Boatfield (British, b. 1960)
The World and his Wife
pen, ink and watercolour on paper
signed, titled and dated on the mount
41 x 42 cm.
This large full-page wonderfully detailed illustration is an allegorical scene showing a variety of figures preparing to perform "the world and his wife". One is moaning "For heaven's sake, this is the dress rehearsal, and if God can't get off his arse and join us for the finale, we'll drop him from the show altogether." The picture is full of life and shows a number of figures in satirical style.
