This sketch includes the Castel Sant’ Angelo on one side of the paper and Saint Peter’s on the other side. A letter from Wright to an unknown individual is also written on the paper. The recipient is possibly the Rev Thomas Gisborne, an artist friend of Wright who appears to be acting on the latter’s behalf to sell one of his paintings.« Previous in this sectionNext in this section »
