- Curator's comments
- The Schreiber catalogue entry suggested that Mars was a portrait of Cameron of Lochiel and Bellona of Flora MacDonald, but Joanne Watson (email Oct 2022) noted Prince Charles Edward Stuart did not meet Flora Macdonald until 21st June 1746 so this identification is fanciful if the dating of the print is accurate. Both figures look in any case pretty generic which would argue against them being portraits.
