LEWIS CARROLL (1832-1898)
Detail study of Brook Taylor Kitchin as St. George. Vignetted albumen print, the sheet measuring 5 7/8x4 inches (14.9x10.2 cm.), the mount slightly larger, with Carroll's negative number 2317 in his lavender ink on mount verso. 1875

Provenance: Private English dealer

Alexandra "Xie" Kitchin, Brook's sister, was one of Carroll's favorite subjects. One of his better-known works features Xie as the princess and her brother on his hobby horse as St. George. This detail study is highly unusual and appears to be from the same sitting.
