Catalogue entry

One of a number of sketches of rustic figures and cottage dwellers in this sketchbook; a closely related sketch, perhaps made at the same time, is on the verso (D05974). Possibly these were made during the trip to Hertfordshire and Cassiobury when he used the book (see Introduction).
