Perry 28mm. I do like Vexy (his horse)…is he still exhibited in the Netherlands Army Museum?

Ah ha. Commonsense would have said follow your link before posting! You have answered my Qs!

Great research gone into this and I agree his horse (I thought it was Vexy) does now seem much browner, once stuffed, than the painting. I had understood it was the ravages of time, but then many a painting shows the Prince during the 100 days indeed riding a bay (as does your lower picture)

A tip. Much better depth of field if you close the shutter (a higher f number), but you need more light and a longer exposure. A sunny day and the cheapest little tripod would do.

Tripods make my so-so efforts look good.
