Sketches for the west wall of the Painted Hall, Greenwich
Two studies, one above the other and annotated by Thornhill on a single sheet, laid down on another with a drawn border. Both show George, Prince of Wales (later George II), in armour on the left at the top of steps, with Thornhill at the bottom, back to viewer by the pillar base on the right. The Prince has his left hand on his hip and holds a commander's baton in his right. Thornhill's left hand is also on his hip and gestures towards the Prince with his right, while his head turns over his left shoulder to look out at the viewer.
