The Two Central Figures in ‘Derby Day’ (1860). William Powell Frith (British, 1819-1909). Oil on canvas. Met.
This small painting relates to Derby Day, the enormous and climactic work of Frith’s midcareer. The only real difference between the couple in the big picture and the one here is that the purse held by the lady in Derby Day has been transformed into a pen and a notebook. The finish of the figures in the small work is unusually tight, but not unknown for Frith, and he probably had a studio assistant to help him with landscape backgrounds.
