“Five, in the Afternoon”: A scene from the day of a young dandy’s life in 1795.


This image is from a set depicting various times during the day.  This particular image shows a young dandy on a sofa with a young woman.  They both hold glasses filled from the two Madeira bottles on the table.  Below the title at the bottom appears the line, “With Women & Wine I defy ev’ry Care”.
