This pictures illustrates the line from the Book of Isiah inscribed on the frame. Stanhope worked alongside Burne-Jones in the Oxford Union building during the project to dcorate its walls with scenes from the 'Morte d'Arthur'. Burne-Jones later reflected 'His colour was beyond any the finest in Europe; an exceptional turn for landscape he had too - quite individual. Rossetti was in a perfect state of enthusiasm about it - that was how he got to know him'.
