About This Image
Except for some minor fading at the top, the print itself is in very good condition. It is interesting that these images, especially with the later copy borders included with this image, have always been attributed to Saunders, yet one was in an early album of images largely taken by the "Firm" (Miller, et. al.) that I handled. Clark Worswick and the J.Paul Getty Museum attribute these images to John Hing-Qua. See: First Draft. The Newsletter of the Getty Research Institute, Fall 2004, p.18.
