Walking Attire

Regency Fashion Watercolour


Inspired by a French fashion plate, this watercolour shows a well-dressed young Regency lady walking in a landscape. She is wearing a buff-coloured coat, known as a carrick, over a high-waisted dress with a gold and ruby necklace and a striking black velvet hat topped with ostrich feathers.

Watercolour on paper presented in a period bird’s eye maple veneer frame with a gilt slip.
