Draped Study of Kneeling Man with Hands Clasped for 'Bunyan' [and/or 'Athena and Poseidon']

WAG 9702


Described as a study for a 'Bunyan' panel, this may relate to 'Christian and Hopeful Arrive before the Celestial City', Tate Collection (T06872), although there is no clothed kneeling figure in the final painting. There is no obvious corresponding figure in 'The Contest between Athena and Poseidon for the Patronage of Athens' (Victoria Gallery and Museum, University of Liverpool) either but this may be a mis-transcribed inscription.
