Lot Essay

From the collection of one of Conder's closest friends and patrons, Conder met Dalhousie Young in 1896 (the year of the present work), and illustrated his song cycle In a Gondola in the same year. Young and his wife bought and commissioned work from Conder, including pictures, fans and painted textiles.
