Copy of a painting of the Virgin and Child with Saint Jerome, Saint Roch and two Others, apparently by Francesco Morone Charles Fairfax Murray

  • Curator’s description:


    This drawing was not catalogued by Ruskin, but was presumably one of the 'several water-colours of Venetian pictures by Mr. C. Fairfax Murray' listed as being in the Long Cabinet by Cook and Wedderburn (XXI.306). The imprecision of Cook and Wedderburn's description of the cabinet mean that it has been given an arbitrary number within the cabinet for the purposes of the current catalogue.
