Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Lady Thomson

    The above works were drawn by Millais in 1846 for a sketchbook belonging to Mr. Drury of Shotover Park near Oxford. Millais first visited Mr Drury in 1846 and soon became a great favourite of his. Millais's half-brother William Millais commented of Mr Drury

    'My brother often went to stay at Shotover Park, and on one occasion I was invited there too for a fortnight. There was no one with Mr Drury in the huge mansion except his niece, and we boys had the run of the place to our hearts content, fishing and shooting wherever we liked.'

    J. G. Millais, 'The Life and Letters of Sir John Everett Millais', Methuen, 1899, Vol 1, p.37.
