St. James Park and the Mall, artist unknown, c.1745, from the Royal Collection Trust.
There's a lot going on in this beautiful and busy painting. Soldiers, citizens, men, women, dogs and cows all gather in St. James Park. Among the throng is a sailor! Can you find him?
For those not looking to play "Where's Bosun's Mate Waldo?" here's a detail from the painting:
He has buttoned his single breasted waistcoat up with brass buttons. The cuffs have brass buttons matching those on his front. This painting shows a cocked hat pointed forward, or cocked over the right eye.
This painting is a wealth of representations, of which the sailor is only a small part. Be sure to search out some other nuggets!
