Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827)
Sowing one's wild Oats...

Medium: Watercolour
Size without frame: 7.3" x 11.0"
Size including frame: 13.2" x 16.3"
Price:   £1,650  includes FREE worldwide delivery

Quite what Rowlandson is satirising here is a little difficult to establish - any thoughts welcomed! It is possibly something related to the Corn laws and the manipulation of grain/seed prices. Or, more simply, an adultery with the couple caught in the loft of a seed store. Signed, and dated 1789.
