Museum purchase, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts Endowment Fund
Time as a winged old man in centre reclines against broken column; all around is in the process of brokeness and final decay, including a bell, bow, rifle, bottle, crown, and artist's palette. Hogarth's print 'The Times' burns by the flame of a candle. At top Phaeton and his chariot have expired in the clouds. A sign with burning globe reads "The Worlds End", and a statute declaring Nature bankrupt with pendant and seal is at bottom left.
