Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Collection of Mrs Gertrude Holliday
    her sale, Edgbaston, Birmingham, circa 1938
    Acquired from the above by the father of the present owner
    Private collection, UK

    Although the exact subject of this drawing is unknown, it has been suggested that it might have been a design for the painted decoration of a musical instrument, probably a piano, conceived around 1880. Burne-Jones undertook design decoration for several pianos and worked with the Broadwood firm to 'reform' the shape of the typical grand piano.

    We are grateful to Peter Cormack MBE FSA for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
