A fine standing huntsman or brigand with ribboned hat, possibly representing Michele Pezza from the Opera Fra Diavolo. He stands wearing a jacket and breeches, a cloak is over his right shoulder. He rests his right hand on a tree stump. Referred to by Pugh as Massaroni but called “Brigand” in the Dudson ledger. A magnificent example full of the Dudson colour palette.
