A Harvest Man - Old Hook
Titled and dated as above, and signed 'AdVprGB' (to the life by Gabriel Bray) this shows a country reaper with his sickle and a small barrico or keg, probably for ale as necessary refreshment in the hot and dusty work of summer harvesting. He also wears protective leggings. Hook is the name of a village in Hampshire but, given that Bray is believed to have come from Kent, 'Old Hook' here is more likely to refer to Old Hook Farm (which still exists) at Eastchurch near Sheerness.
