Provenance

Bequeathed by the artist in 1816 to James White of Exeter (1744–1825), on whose death it passed to Towne’s residuary legatee John Herman Merivale (1779–1844) and his successors. Merivale’s granddaughters Maria Sophia Merivale (1853–1928) and Judith Ann Merivale (1860–1945), both of Oxford, inherited the drawing in May 1915 (BP191, BP192, BP193, or BP194). In 1945 Judith Merivale sold it to Squire Gallery for £50 in a parcel of “two small sketchbooks and five small drawings late in date”, after which point is is untraced.
