A Dandy
Pen & Ink with watercolour
Ca, 1820
200 x 150 mm
A caricaturised dandy with a very prominent nose strides along, cane in hand.
Below him are four lines of manuscript verse;
Why thus array’d in charms you shine
The fairest flower of Valentine
My all that’s Ugly fool and Donkey
My Babboon Scaramouch & Monkey.
