A wonderfully naive watercolour of a Regency gentleman, dressed in the height of fashion with his riding crop in one hand, a large key in the other. He stands beside a rather idiosyncratic stable from which a saddled chestnut horse appears. Once again we see proportion and perspective in trouble, but the level of detailing of the clothes is excellent. Quite charming.
Some foxing but the colours still true.
