The situation Beerbohm depicts relates to Lord Curzon's translation of a poem entitled 'Le drapeau belge' by Cammaerts. The words were set in 1917 by Elgar.
This original drawing is especially interesting for Beerbohm's detailed and exacting notes for reproduction ("Please cut this drawing out very carefully, exactly according to the pencil line drawn round it... it may be advisable that the drawing is reproduced by chromatic process - so that the blues don't come out too pale...")
