This charming picture is a valuable addition to the display of Regency material at the Geffrye.

Chalon, born in Geneva into a Huguenot family that settled in England at the time of the French Revolution, is well known for his small, sprightly portraits, chiefly in watercolour; which brilliantly capture the manners and fashions of the day.
