Abstract:
"A small ugly man rides a galloping horse in profile to the left, his leg thrust forward. He wears spectacles, his complexion is dark. There is a background of grass and trees, and in the distance a building with a pediment, evidently the new Knightsbridge Barracks (see 'Gent. Mag.', July 1797, p. 545, pl.)."--British Museum online catalogue.
