See 'Boom Boom Cluster: The David Brown Bequest', Southampton City Art Gallery, 2004 p.100 where David Brown is quoted as saying that the first book on art he bought was on Rowlandson, by Bernard Faulk and "I started buying art in 1958. I was taken to various galleries and the one I was taken to most, and bought things from, was the Lord's Gallery in St Johns Wood run by a man called Philip Granville. I think I bought from him a watercolour by Rowlandson, of a woman with a wine glass, which looks like either the artist was drunk, or the lady was drunk when he painted it. I bought that for sentimental reasons, because the first art book I bought when I was a veterinary scientist was on Rowlandson".
