Description

George Henry Harlow (1787-1819) was highly regarded as a portrait painter who produced many portraits of famous actors and actresses, as well as this portrait of Thomas Rowlandson at age of 58, two years after Rowlandson first produced The Tour of Dr. Syntax: In Search of the Picturesque, published by Rudolph Ackermann with verses by William Combe. In this portrait Rowlandson holds a preliminary drawing for an illustration to his popular work. On close inspection, you can see the comical Dr. Syntax, riding crop in hand, with his trusty horse Grizzle.
