Notes:
'The Legend of the Birds' was an ambitious watercolour exhibited at the Vienna Secession in 1900 and the Turin International Exhibition in 1902. Herbert McNair did a companion panel, 'The Legend of the Snowdrops' - see GLAHA 41977. A cartoon is a preliminary to size drawing used to transfer the design to the final support. In this case to a fine linen.
