- Curator's comments
- Evidently the work of an amateur experimenting with the technique of lithography. The print must have been made before 1833 when the dedicatee, Joseph Tarver, died.
Dr Raymond Turley (correspondence, May 2008) draws attention to Hubert Garle, "A Driving Tour in the Isle of Wight" (Newport: The County Press, 1905) where the author notes a painting by George Morland entitled "The Death of the Hare" painted at Briddlesford, Isle of Wight; this is possibly the source for Sharpe's print.
