The Hedge Cutter: At Broughton Castle, Amber examines a full-size portrait of an 18th-century hedge cutter, a rare example of a worker being immortalized on canvas. Although no one knows who the subject is, or even who painted it, one thing that is certain is that the man's patched-up leather coat reveals much about the clothing of ordinary working people of the period.
