Scope and content

Pencil sketch of two figures fishing on a river, set in a landscape near a bridge (probably English). The figures are very small. Burgess was appointed landscape Painter to Lady Falkland's father, William IV, in 1826. He published a book on the appearance of trees (1827).
As a natural daughter, Lady Falkland could not commission court artists of the first rank. However, she was able to draw on less important artists connected with the court, such as Ziegler, Burgess, and Hayter.
The inscription on secondary support is in Lady Falkland's handwriting.
