Scope and Contents

From the Series:

The portraits have been cut out of larger sheets or sketchbooks and mounted in albums. Most of the sitters are unidentified. In accordance with Charles Kirkpatrick Sharpe's practice (see ‘Letters from and to Charles Kirkpatrick Sharpe’, volume i, pages 21, 40) the heads are completed in watercolours but the rest of the figure and any background are usually only sketched in pencil.
