Notes

Sandys made a number of drawings on tracing paper of figures from stained glass windows in Norfolk. These may have been part of the 'Norfolk Collection' commission Sandys recieved from his patron Rev. James Bulwer who enlisted local artists to produce works based on 'Norfolk church exteriors and interiors, sculpture, pulpits and fonts, decorations such as mural, stained glass, and painted screens' (Betty Elzea, Frederick Sandys 1829-1904: A Catalogue Raisonné, p. 313).

Purchased and presented by subscribers, 1906.
