Grimaldi's Tandem (painting)
From the pantomime Harlequin and Padmanaba, or, The Golden Fish produced at Covent Garden in 1811. The cart made up of a cradle, four cheeses and a fender and drawn by dogs burlesques the notoriusly ostentatious carriage owned by Robert `Romeo' Coates. Although Joseph Grimaldi was the most famous Clown of his day, the star of this pantomime was Chuny, the first elephant on the London stage.
