Notes

One of eleven studies in Birmingham's collection for a series of six stained glass panels called 'The Garland Weavers', installed in the Green Dining Room at 1 Palace Green (now in the Victoria and Albert Museum). The figures were set into three windows, with two panels in each, forming part of a larger scheme for which Philip Webb was responsible.

This is a study for the figure in panel two of the stained glass. A watercolour version of this design (1867) is in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham Public Libraries (on loan to Leighton House, Kensington), Cecil French Bequest.

Purchased and presented by subscribers, 1903.
