- Curator's comments
- This drawing came to the department as anonymous and when Binyon catalogued the collection, it had been given an attribution to John Crome and was kept with his drawings in period IV. Binyon noted, however, that it may have been a mistaken attribution and should have been Robert Crone. In 1963 the drawing was attributed to the latter and moved to period III.
In 1951 it was included by Brinsley Ford in his book 'The Drawings of Richard Wilson' as no. 80, p. 63 as 'Attributed to R. Crone'. He noted that comparison with drawings by Crone in the Iolo Williams collection (signed R.C.) supported but did not definitely confirm these attributions. Crone was an artist who studied under Wilson in Rome and executed many drawings in black and white chalk on blue-grey paper. Ford also noted there is a drawing in the Royal Collection that is similar in style to the present drawing but with some noticeable differences.
Ford himself owned a similar drawing, which he listed as no. 81 in his catalogue with an attribution to Crone as well.
