Satirical engraving by George Murgatroyd Woodward (1765-1809) entitled ‘Sailors at a Methodist Sermon’. The print was published by Walker in the Strand in 1807.
Woodward was an English humorous writer and caricaturist. He issued many similar engravings satirising Methodism, the established Church, the law and the state in the early 1800s. His drawings were nearly all etched by others, in particular Thomas Rowlandson, but also Charles Williams, Isaac Cruikshank, Piercy Roberts and others.
