Inspired by William Hogarth's 'A Rake's Progress' (1732–1734), 'Polling Day at The Antelope' is set in The Antelope pub, Marsh Street, Hanley Stoke-on-Trent, where the artist occasionally met up with friends on Friday evenings. The painting was exhibited in the 'MIRRORS' exhibition at Stoke-on-Trent City Museum & Art Gallery (now the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery) in 1986–1987.
