John Hassell was a watercolourist, engraver, illustrator, writer, publisher and drawing-master. His published works were illustrated with engravings after his own works and in 1790 he published 'A Tour of the Isle of Wight'. He was a close friend and biographer of George Morland. Is it these two that we see in the foreground hollow?
