One Bay of the Water-Colour Galleries', 1860s, (1881). A proposal for ornamenting one of the bays of the National Competition Gallery in the South Kensington Museum in London. The lunette (semi-circular area) is divided into five segments containing garland-bearing cherubs or putti, titled 'Composition of Children'. In the centre is a display of watercolour drawings, framed by a pair of pilasters painted to resemble marble, each supporting an acanthus-leaf corbel with a roof bracket above. Woodcut after a design by Richard Redgrave, first Keeper of Paintings at the Museum. From "The South Kensington Museum", a book of engraved illustrations, with descriptions, of the works of art in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (formerly known as the South Kensington Museum).
