相關資料

Painted circa 1822, the present painting is a sketch for a larger work which was commissioned by the Duke of Bedford for 500 guineas, and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1827, no. 64, under the title Sides All. The exhibited painting remained at Woburn Abbey until 1951, when it was acquired by Lord Rockley. The scene depicted is that of dray horses dragging barrels; in the distance, it is possible to discern the misty outline of St. Paul's Cathedral, and it is likely that the composition is set in Kensington, where there is still a pub called The Bunch of Grapes.
