In the months Mackintosh spent at Walberswick, between 1914 and 1915, he produced over 40 flower drawings for publication or exhibition on the continent; plans curtailed by the outbreak of war. A related drawing d.1914, was sold at Sotheby's Belgravia, 4.07.1980 (301). Larkspur (Consolida ambigua) is a commonly cultivated hardy annual. It grows wild in the Mediterranean region and can reach a height of over 3 feet (1 metre).
