Description

Three women in a street, one wearing a large-brimmed hat slanted steeply over her hair which is dressed high in a veil, smiling towards the viewer as she smells a flower from a dish proffered by a flower girl standing on the left; watched by a third woman and a boy sitting in a doorway on the left, with a European man in the background, watching as a West Indian rolls a barrel down the street; one of a set. 1810. Hand-coloured etching and stipple.
