An antique aquatint in original colours entitled Tom and Jerry in Trouble after a Spree. Drawn and engraved by Isaac and George Cruikshank. It shows English dandies, Tom and Jerry up before the judge for drunkenness.
George Cruikshank was born in London, and started his career in his father's business of caricaturist as an apprentice. His older brother, who is also credited for this print also followed in the family business. George's first major work was Pierce Egan's Life in London in which the characters Tom and Jerry, two 'men about town' visit various London locations and taverns to enjoy themselves and carouse, of which this print is an example.
