Accidentally writing “pervy shelley” instead of percy shelley
Love the detail of this painting. You can see the silver buckle and the straps for the breeches, as well as the jewels and the large buttons.
Detail of buckle and buttons of a pair of yellow breeches worn by Sebastián Martínez y Pérez (1747–1800), 1792, by Francisco de Goya.
The whole picture: I cropped this image a little for the cover of the new special issue of the journal Eighteenth-Century Fiction: “The Senses of Humour/Les Sens de l’humour,” so I thought I should share the entire engraving here on Tumblr.
