Notes

One of a number of studies in Birmingham's collection for the watercolour entitled 'Theophilus and the Angel'. Two versions of the painting were made, one was destroyed in the second world war (1863), the other (c.1866) was sold at Sotheby's in 2008.

This appears to be an early study for the angel, the pose was not adopted in the final version.

Purchased and presented by subscribers, 1903.
