Abstract:
"A young man in profile to the right, with a knotted bludgeon under his arm, holds a fierce mastiff by the collar. This collar, being inscribed 'Hamil[ton]', shows that the duke is Douglas, 8th Duke (1756-95), Duke of Brandon in the English peerage. He has cropped hair and wears the dress of the young blood of 1791, with the star of the Thistle."--British Museum online catalogue.
