Looking at this print and Ways of Drinking Champagne, do you see a similarity? In the marginalia, the drunk chubby cupid in the wine glass in the marginalia hints at the plump woman on the left, possibly under the influence of alcohol too. See also Private Theatricals for its commentary on alcohol’s effects.

For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
