Suitors, c1780-1825. 'In "Suitors" we find one of the subjects drawn from Rowlandson's imagination, a source which was inexhaustible. These invasions of thought, coupled with his curiosity as to what might happen, often brought forth accidental and exceptional achievements that otherwise would not have come to pass...The types demand close study both for attitude and facial expression'. From "The Watercolour Drawings of Thomas Rowlandson from the Albert H. Wiggin Collection in the Boston Public Library" with commentary by Arthur W. Heintzelman. [Watson-Guptill Publications, Inc., New York, 1947]
