Sir Garnet Wolseley
Bequest of Margaret Watson Parker
This sketch depicts a man in profile, facing toward his right. He wears a turban and an elaborate collar. On the verso is pasted a small print of James Barry's painting "The Distribution of Premiums in the Society of Arts", originally part of a series "The Progress of Human Culture" painted between 1777 and 1784. The print is smaller and more simplified than the official print Barry made after his painting published in 1792, and probably came from a book.

Her face is presented in nearly strict profile, looking to the right; her long, waving hair cascades around her, framing her face. Her right arm is in her lap and her skirt is only lightly sketched in. At the lower left corner, another sketch of a woman's head (seen upside down) is visible.
