    Gifted by Victoria's fourth daughter Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll, to a Sir Gerald.
    Charing Cross Hospital Amenity fund.
    Private collection U.K. (purchased from the above in 1975), and thence by descent.

    From the age of eight, Victoria received drawing lessons from the noted artist Richard Westall (1765-1836). She started by copying simple studies of his and would move on to more completed works, such as the one presented here. This work is a copy of a watercolour still held in the Royal Collection (RCIN 925121).
