Further Reading
  • The figures have been identified in previous Wallace Collection catalogues as Albanians, but they were first recorded as a Greek and a Turk (which seems apposite for the figure on the right). As identification remains problematic, a neutral title has been given here. This work was dated c.1830 by Mosby.
