Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Dr Wendy Baron for her kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

The present work by Sickert is part of the ‘Echoes’ series of around a hundred paintings that draw from designs found in old editions of the London Journal, The Illustrated London News and other 19th-century periodicals.

John Gilbert (1817-1897) was a 19th-century illustrator for The Illustrated London News whom Sickert met as a young draughtsman and long admired.
