LITERATURE : John Munday, E.W.Cooke, A Man of his Time, (Woodbridge, 1996), p. 361, illus. pl. 299, - '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 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.
