Studies of children for 'The Ever Reigning Queen', by November 1880
Henry Hugh Armstead RA (1828 - 1905)
RA Collection: Art
These drawings of children are studies for Armstead's Royal Academy diploma work, a marble relief sculpture entitled 'The Ever Reigning Queen' (03/1671). The sculpture depicts the goddess Venus standing on a scallop shell and gliding through the sea on a dolphin's back. She is surrounded by swirling drapery and accompanied by birds and putti. These drawings related to the two putti.
