[Caveller, Dancing Master.]
[Crank Pinx.t. Faber Fecit.]
[n.d., c.1750.]
Mezzotint, extremely rare unfinished proof. 360 x 255mm (14¼ x 10"). Thread margins top and bottom, laid on card at sides.
A three-quarter length portrait of a man wearing wig and long coat with cuffs, leaning on a table on which is a sheet with music and a map of dance steps. Little is known about 'Caveller'; the BM notes: ''Possibly the same as Mr Cavillier, master of the boarding-school in Queen's Square near Ormond street (d.1745). Also possibly the same as the Thomas Caverley alluded to by Thomlinson in his Art of Dancing''.
