The acquisition is made in the Hunterian's bicentenary year, and has been chosen to reflect Hunter's support of the arts, and his network of contacts, especially with Benjamin West and George III. This drawing is an exceptionally vigorous and interesting image, containing an echo of Rubenss Voyage of the Prince (Quos Ego) painting in the Dresden royal collection.
Private collection; Sotheby's, 2006; Lowell Libson. This work has been vetted by the Art Loss Register and LSAD database.
