-As well as being [[blatant]] in his observations, [[James Gillray]] could be incredibly [[subtle]], and puncture [[vanity]] with a remarkably [[deft]] approach. The outstanding example of this is his print ''Fashionable Contrasts;—or—The Duchess's little Shoe yeilding ''[''sic'']''<!--Please do not correct this "misspelling"; it is in the original, which we quote here--> to the Magnitude of the Duke's Foot''. This was a devastating image aimed at the ridiculous [[sycophancy]] directed by the press towards [[Frederica Charlotte Ulrica]], Duchess of York, and the supposed daintiness of her feet. The print showed only the feet and ankles of the Duke and Duchess of York, in an obviously [[copulatory]] position, with the Duke's feet enlarged and the Duchess's feet drawn very small. This print silenced forever the sycophancy of the press regarding the union of the Duke and Duchess.+#: ''He assembled it in one fluid, '''deft''' motion.''

-The print was originally published by [[Hannah Humphrey]] on [[January 24]], [[1792]].+
