A Field, Fin, or Mountain Laplander in his common winter dress of skin.
Pencil and watercolour, sheet 230 x 185mm (9 x 7¼"). Glued to album sheet.
Watercolour copy of the figure from a lithograph by Denis Dighton, itself taken from a drawing by Sir Arthur de Capell Brooke. Dighton's lithograph, identifying the subject as 'Sven Rassmoussan' (the rest of the text is similar to that inscribed here) was published as a plate to Brooke's volume 'Travels through Sweden, Norway, and Finmark, to the North Cape in the Summer of 1820' (published 1823).
For the lithograph from which this was copied, see ref. 15136.
