This is a very freely worked compositional study. In the 1916 Burlington Fine Arts Club catalogue, it was noted that the old mount bore a signature: R. Wilson, and that D 4664 could be compared with several Italian studies in the Dyce collection at South Kensington, in which similar tinted paper was employed. Such works include D361A Landscape: Road winding past Ruins of a Castle (DYCE.645).
