Abstract:
"Frontispiece to the catalogue of the pictures exhibited by the Society of Artists, at their first exhibition in Spring Gardens; Britannia standing in a rocky landscape, filling a watering can from a fountain with lion's head spout and a bust statue of George III in a niche surmounted by a crown, lettered 'Georgius III Rex. MDCCLXI.'; the watering can pours onto three short trees growing in a clump at right, favouring the one with the trunk labelled 'Architecture' and, to a lesser extent, the tree labelled 'Painting'; the tree 'Sculpture', on slightly lower ground, is not in the line of the spray"--British Museum online catalogue.
