Footnotes

  • The present composition was clearly popular, given the number of versions known. It is based on the work, formerly in the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, deaccessioned and sold at Sotheby's New York, 17 June 1982, lot 52 but the artist in the present work has altered some of the figures and architectural details. The addition of the figure and the stone tablet, lower left, differ from the Raleigh version. The inscription carved into the tablet refers to the Emperor Claudius and also to Britannia, suggesting that the present work may be an English imitation of a Panini.
