Saint Patrick shown full length expelling the snakes from Ireland; standing in a landscape, looking to left with one hand raised in blessing, holding a crook and wearing a Bishop's robes and mitre, while snakes, toads and dragons crowd around his feet; a church and village in the background. 1806 Hand-coloured mezzotint with etching
