The Italian decorative painter Biagio Rebecca worked for George at Carlton House and Brighton Pavilion. This drawing may provide evidence that he also worked at the King’s Theatre, or Opera House, in the Haymarket. It has recently been connected with a rebuilding of the theatre in the early 1790s, in which George took a great interest.

Purchased in 1804
