Surtees describes the work as: “Illustration to the play by Matthew Gregory Lewis. On the castle ramparts two young
men stand armed for battle; on the left a third holds a spear. Palm trees in the background, and a
standard inscribed ‘Conway Castle’” (Surtees,
A Catalogue Raisonné, vol. 1, 1 (no. 2)
). WMR calls it a “coloured design”,
and notes that it comprises two subjects, the first, Percy and Motley and the
other, Osmond and Kenrick (see
WMR, Family Letters, vol. 1, 86.). Surtees is probably refering to Percy and
Motley, while Osmond and Kenrick is contained in the Fredeman Cabinet
series of drawings.
