Scholarly Commentary


This is a set of instructions for a studio assistant, probably set out in 1867 for his new assistant Treffrey Dunn, though it may date from late 1862 or early 1863 as instructions for his first assistant, William Knewstub. It describes a “palette for flesh”. See the other related set done about the same time, also at Texas.
