Character Studies

Here’s a pic by society painter Johann Zoffany of a Georgian group out on the water playing music. It’s interesting as it shows a shwarm, or serpent, though the man seems unsure what to do with it, or perhaps where to put it. Not sure what the man at the top is up to, perhaps wants to get off. The kids are kept well out of it, and the dog in the centre wishes he was somewhere else.
