Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    James Douglas Fletcher, Rosehaugh House, Ross-Shire
    With Stacy Marks Gallery, Eastbourne
    Private collection, UK

    EXHIBITED:
    Royal Academy, 1869, no. 824

    The title refers to a traditional and rather bawdy folk song about the decline of sexual vigour, collected by Robert Burns in 1799 for the Merry Muses of Caledonia. His celebrated version which inspired this picture is much more affectionate and tempered in tone, describing the ageing process.
