Footnotes

  • Exhibited:
    London, Royal Watercolour Society, no. 159, Summer Exhibition of 1878.

    The work bears a label on the verso which reads:

    'When love was young and men were strong,
    And maids believed them true,
    A shepherd came with pretty song,
    Unto a maid to woo.

    EF Brewtnall
    1 The Mall
    Park Road
    Kaverstock HIll
    N.W.'

    Brewtnall often compsed his own songs and poems, and 1902 he composed a poem for Sir Ernest Waterlow, the President of the Royal Watercolour Society. It is likely that Brewtnall also composed the figures depicted on the reverse of the present lot.
