Colonel Seaham, late 18th-early 19th century. 'An outstanding example of Rowlandson's portraiture is here illustraited in "Colonel Seaham". We feel that if this characterization had been carried further, much would have been lost. It takes no flight of the imagination to read this gentleman's personality. The color is incidental, for the greatness in this slight but extremely discerning impression is in the linear representation'. 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]
