Catalogue Note

Meteyard’s watercolour designs for Hodder & Stourton’s 1910 illustrated 'The Golden Legend' by Henry Longfellow, were his most ambitious and celebrated illustrative project. There were twenty-five and many of the original watercolours survive; the present watercolour being made for opposite the prologue; ‘The spire of Stasbourg Cathedral. Night and Storm. Lucifer, with the Powers of the Air, trying to tear down the cross.'
