A superb well-coloured example of Highland Jessie. A group figure of a man and woman standing, she has a plumed hat, jacket, and long dress, a sash across her shoulder and through her arm, her left hand on her hip and her right holding a rifle by its barrel, next to her stands a wounded officer with his right hand on her shoulder, his left in a sling, wearing a military uniform with a sword at his side. Highland Jessie was a mythical figure who was supposedly at the relief of Lucknow and rallied the troops by shouting that she could hear the bagpipes of the relieving troops.
