Caricature of Joseph Banks (1743-1820)
Sir Joseph Banks holding two nets and in pursuit of a butterfly (the titular Emperor of Morocco), stepping on a gardener and knocking over potted plants. His tri-corner hat flies off and in the background is a garden wall with a sign, "STEEL TRAPS". Inscribed in pencil "Sir J Banks". Used to illustrate Peter Pindar's satirical poem "Sir Joseph Banks and the Emperor of Morocco". Sir Joseph Banks was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1766, he served as its President from 1778 to 1820.
