Description:Gaspar Gabrielli was brought to Ireland by the second Lord Cloncurry in 1805 for the decoration of his estate, Lyons of County Kildare. He contributed similar decorative work to Tanderagee Castle and No. 41 North Great George's Street and also various landscapes to exhibitions in Dublin between 1809-1814. Gabrielli continued to practise landscape painting in Ireland for some years, returning to Italy in 1819. The present illustration satirizes the 'criminal conversation' proceedings in which Gabrielli was an eyewitness. The 'conversation' was between Lord Cloncurry and his wife's lover, Sir John Piers.
