Description

Portrait of John Burton seated at a table, wearing a dark double-breasted coat and light buttoned breeches. He has a white cravat and a red flower in his button hole. On the table is a map, and he holds a pen in his hand. Behind him a rural landscape can be glimpsed through a window. This type of portrait uses common symbolism to show the sitter as the owner of land.

From the collection of Alexander Chalmers.
