Posting in Germany, c1780-1825. Travellers outside an inn. '...we can see Rowlandson devoting himself to experimentation with chiaroscuro to discover to what degree and in what manner he might develop his work in subtle arrangements of chromatic harmonies. Nowhere do we find the results of these early experiments more vividly illustrated than in the scenes of coach activity'. 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]
