On a Visit in Style - Taking a Ride - West India Fashionables
Two vignettes inscribed 'Taking a Ride' and 'West India Fashionables', probably by James Sayers (1748-1823). This image satirizes a planter in the British Caribbean colonies. It illustrates his life of ease, and contrasts this with the heavy burdens being carried and menial tasks being done by enslaved people on the plantation.
