Catalogue Note

This drawing was made for one the series of six stained-glass panels designed in 1866 as part of a decorative scheme by Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Company installed in the Green Dining Room at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London (now one of the refreshment rooms). With no narrative content, the windows each depict a solitary woman tending flowers and dressed in white gowns decorated with golden designs. The cartoons for the windows were later worked-up into independent watercolours titled The Garland, originally framed together but now dispersed (one in the collection of the Cecil French Bequest, another sold Christie’s, 11 July 2017, lot 7 and another 4 September 2014, lot 45).
