Symptoms of deep-thinking

description below“Sir Charles Bunbury, a stout, elderly, plainly dressed man, walks in profile to the left, staring with fierce concentration, one hand on his heart, the other deep in his breeches pocket. He steps on a loose flag-stone from which a fountain of mud splashes over his stockings. The background is a stone wall; down it runs a pipe from which a muddy stream gushes on to the pavement. A sign-post points ‘To Sthephens Chaple’.”–British Museum online catalogue.
