Scholarly Commentary


This drawing is part of a series of sketches from the British Library's Small Notebook 1 that appear to be related to the painting, Water Willow . This rough architectural drawing may be a preliminary sketch of Kelmscott Manor itself, which can be seen in a more polished form in later drawings for the subject.
