From Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk:
This is an oil on canvas painting. It depicts thirteen cavaliers gathered in a field. It is done after Velázquez's Gathering of Gentlemen, currently in the Louvre. The thirteen well dressed cavaliers are in two side groupings, and one center grouping of seven. They all face different directions, five of them have their backs to the viewer, and ten have their heads at the same level. They wear long leather boots, coats and swords along with the hats with feathers. They all appear to be engaged in conversation with each other.
