(Silhouette of a Rider)
London, ca. 1820
Wood engraving
200 x 130 mm
A rider stands, in long cloak, breeches, boots and hat, with whip in his hand. He turns to hold the reins of his horse, whose head and neck only are visible, engraved in outline. The man is heavily engraved, his head particularly, to show a sharp nosed profile.
