  • The decorative surround is signed, bottom right: 'E.V. Leduc'. This is therefore a joint work by Vernet and the architect Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879).Vernet was one of the favourite artists of the 4th Marquess of Hertford, and his paintings are very well represented in the Wallace Collection.
