This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by Paul Rainer.

Massereene laughed in the Governor's face. "If you shoot me, you will have to pay my debts." In 1779 Lord Massereene was a foot-loose and fancy free aristocrat enjoying life in Paris. With an income of 100,000 francs a year he could afford an opulent lifestyle. However in less than six months he had spent 376,732 francs and debtors prison loomed.

His personal fortune back in Ireland meant he could "buy" better lodgings within the prison and even entertain with a choice wine cellar.

From Look and Learn #386 7 June 1969.
