Cartoon of a Jewish man learning his brother was consumed as pickled pork

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.584

Early 19th century antisemitic British print making cruel fun of a Jewish man who has discovered that his dead brother, who had been shipped back to England from Jamaica, was taken for pickled pork and eaten during the voyage. Adding to this outrageous insult, the cartoon also ridicules his speech and appearance. The artist's name, Giles Grinagain, is a pseudonym. This print is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
