Oil painting on canvas, Marmion Edward Ferrers (1813-1884), out walking (in the Highlands?), by Rebecca Dulcibella Ferrers Orpen, later Mrs Edward Dering (1830-1923), inscribed and signed. A portrait of the artist's first husband in late middle age, who stands full length turned slightly towards the left and looking in the same direction. He is located in an elevated, autumnal heathland landscape with lakes and mountains visible in the distance behind him. His hair and beard are grey and he wears a dark brown jacket with plus fours and black shoes with silver buckles. A purple cape with a red-brown lining is draped around his shoulders and he wears a black wide-brimmed hat with a red feather. He holds a pair of pale yellow gloves and a cane in his right hand, his left hand resting on top and the cane lodged against a rock. 343146 is a related oil sketch. CMS_PCF_343166
