- Curator's comments
- Recto: see the curator’s comment for 1881,0212.44 on Wilson’s use of architectural fragments in his approach to composition.
Verso: it is possible that this, like ‘Father Tiber’ (1881,0212.44) is copied from a sculptural relief, this would explain the divergence from Wilson’s usual style and subject matter.
