Alten’s drawing of a Cavalier shows the superfluous nature of his clothing; he outlines every drape and layer of clothing to show wealth and high social status. A Cavalier was the name for supporters of King George I during the English Civil War in 1642, who wanted the King to have unlimited powers, without a parliament. The image below show an additional painting Alten completed with the same model in France.
