Sir Francis Leggatt Chantrey's Drawing of Sir Walter Scott (1820)

The Ashmolean Museum at Oxford University holds a pencil drawing evidently made by Sir Francis Leggatt Chantrey during one of the sittings that Sir Walter Scott gave for his 1820 bust. It is a study of Scott's head in profile to the left. A lithograph (reversed) was made of the sketch by R. J. Lane and published in his Lithographic Imitations of Sketches by Modern Artists (1832). Click on the thumbnail, right, to see a photogravure of the drawing as published in Sir James L. Caw's The Scott Gallery (1903).
