33rd Foot, later the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment, portrait of an officer.


33rd Regiment of Foot, later the Duke of Wellington’s West Riding Regiment. An attractive half length portrait of an officer in an early Victorian uniform. The watercolour, measuring 10¾ x 8½ ins, is painted on paper laid on to card and currently in a rather distressed  giltwood and gesso frame, 18½ x 16½ ins. There is no visible signature but we illustrate the lower right corner by his cocked hat where there are some indistinct marks. The gilt buttons are of a plain design with just the regimental number. The face is particularly well painted, the hands less so, as is often the case. The frame appears to have been designed for a canvas rather than a watercolour. may29/5
