Bibliography: Per donor correspondence, “A drawing in the Royal Collection, Windsor, attributed to Rowlandson, ‘Tamborina,’ is said to be a close copy of ‘the well-known print by A. Buck” (A.P. Oppé, “English Drawings, Stuart and Georgian Periods, in the Collection of His Majesty the King at Windsor Castle,” London: Phaidon Press, 1950, cat. 549). This drawing, probably by Buck himself, must have been among the many such purchases by George, Prince of Wales.”
