Signed and inscribed Op. CCCLVIII, Artist-War-Fund 1900.
"In 1899 the Boer War had begun in South Africa, and in the spring of 1900 350 artists donated works to the Artists' War Fund in support of the British troops. After being exhibited in the London Guildhall, the pictures were auctioned by Christie's, who waived the £12,000 profit in favour of the Fund." (Anthony Hobson)
