    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.
