Charles Stewart, 3rd Marquess of Londonderry
Sir Thomas Lawrence

Lawrence vividly evokes his subject's service as a cavalry officer in Spain fighting Napoleon's troops. The gold trimming of his Hussar's uniform gleams against the dark, smoky sky. Stewart's alert glance and his pose suggest both readiness for battle and a casual bravura.
