|Format:||PRINTS & DRAWINGS|
|Published / Created:||
[ca. late eighteenth century]
Inscribed in ink l.l.: G.B. delint.
The drawing is signed with the initials "G.B. delint.". This indicates that the artist was copying a drawing by Gabriel Beranger (ca. 1730-1817) who visited Kilconnell on July 30th, 1779. This drawing must be of a later date. The writing (the way the word "Co.y" is written and the making bold of the first letter of the place-name) is very similar to the other drawings by Austin Cooper (1759-1830). The original by Gabriel Beranger is now lost.
Titles inscribed in ink l.l. and l.r. on image.
