Can you provide some information on this painting? I know I've seen it before. Who is the artist? Who does it depict?

Charles Wilson Peale's "The Artist in his Museum" (1822)

Nice stance. As above, so below. Secret Monitor giving the 'OK' but can't see his right hand index finger too know for sure.

Why isn't that man wearing pants?
Pretty sure he's wearing riding breeches and an old style tailcoat (like a dressage shadbelly jacket). This was back before the Beau Brummelll turned this sort of garb into daytime formal wear.
I only know this because I was in a wedding wearing a morning coat, and I looked quite dashing.
