DescriptionAn army officer (left) examines a tall, thin, bedraggled new recruit. The officer holds a pike and has his right hand resting on his hip, pushing back his coat and making his sash visible. The collar of his coat is black and the cuffs and lapels are dark blue. His black hat has a cockade, but no red feathers. A dog is standing next to the pike. A two-storey house with gabled roof is visible in the background, between the two figures, and behind the new recruit, two trees are visible in the distance. Available on CD 157
