Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    The late David Astor, the Manor House, Sutton Courtenay, 1949 (probably acquired with the purchase of the house in 1945 from Captain Harry Lindsay) and thence by family descent to the present owner

    It is probable that the present works show the paddock and course at Newmarket where Tillemans lived, although the geography of the area has been rather freely interpreted.
