John Collet

If you are more interested in the depiction of British redcoats than stuff about the French then maybe I can interest you in these images by John Collet (c1725-80). He's in the tradition of Hogarth and his pictures are quite amusing giving a slice of life at the time. The first image is from 1772. The second image is called the Elopement (1764), the third The Recruiting Sergeant (1767).
