    Literature:
    see 'E.W.Cooke, A Man of his Time', John Munday, Antique Collectors' Club, Woodbridge, 1996, plate 299, page 361 and is 'a small, vignetted version of a larger watercolour of 1833', which was one of a group recorded in Cooke's Liber (Cooke MS33).

    A 'stackie' is a floating hay barge. This watercolour belongs to Cooke's 'Bonington' period, where the Thames was his nursery.

    We would like John Munday for his help in cataloguing this lot.
