Scholarly Commentary


This drawing, which shows Ivanhoe resplendent in his armour before an embroidered hanging, is one of two known illustrations by DGR of Sir Walter Scott's novel. The other, catalogued in Fredeman's Rossetti Cabinet , depicts The Saracens seizing Isaac, the Jew of York, by order of Front de Boeuf .
