Curator Comment:
On horseback and in lost profile, [name], framed by a gnarled oak tree, rides across the scene and back towards the lance-bearing troops behind. The image is reproduced from [?a pen-and-ink drawing] giving it strong graphic qualities. The story is set during the wars in Ireland of the Elizabethan period.
