The country crier

A crier, his mouth wide open and with an angry expression, shakes his bell in the faces of three gaping and alarmed yokels (right). He wears a long old-fashioned coat, broad cocked hat and wig, and holds a cane. A young man (farmer?) with a pitchfork (left) loiters complacently. A path leads to a farmhouse (left).”–British Museum online catalogue.
