A watercolour showing 3 officers of the Royal Artillery by Orlando Norie (1832-1901) with signature to the centre bottom of the painting.

The soldiers are seen relaxing by their tent with one pouring a drink whilst another sits on an X frame stool and chats with the third, whose horse is being led away. The scene suggests that it is the end of the working day and the officers may well have been on manoeuvres. The tent has a table (which does not look to fold), what may be a bed with a trunk to the front and several items hanging from the tent pole.

Original works of art showing camp scenes are not easy to come by and naturally ones by such well-known artists are even more sort after. Circa 1890.
