[Allegory of War and Peace.]
Watercolour. Colours very fresh. Two sheets joined, total 105 x 650mm, 4 1/4 x 24 1/2". Unique. Folded, a few splits in folds, laid on album paper.
A charming watercolour, showing a scene of war on the left third and peaceful rural scenes on the rest. A warship is shown, disembarquing red-coated soldiers onto an island with a castle flying the Union Flag, while firing on another ship. The rustic scene includes coaching, steeplechasing, with a churchyard, windmill and yachts.
