Notes:

This drawing is the most complete surviving study for Ward's allegorical painting of the Duke of Wellington's victory at the Battle of Waterloo, on which he was engaged between 1815 and 1822. Apart from a brief period in 1822, when it was exhibited at Bullock's Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, the painting, which was executed to over three times the size of the specified dimensions, was never hung. The original canvas was later cut into several pieces; an oil sketch, exhibited at the British Institution in 1816, is now in the National Army Museum, Chelsea.
