Pencil and watercolour on laid paper
Mathews 259 (artist unknown)

1833 London, Queen's Bazaar, Oxford Street, "Mr Mathews's Gallery of Theatrical Portraits" (259)
The sitter wears a blue jacket and a Shakespeare Ribband. See G0006.
This drawing is similar in pose and concept to the portrait by Henry Edridge engraved by William Ridley for Parsons's “Minor Theatre” April 1794, a publication that appears to be closely associated with the School of Garrick portraits.
