This drawing is a partial study for plate number 4, which was one of the 20 illustrations from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. The published image included the following verse: “At length did cross an Albatross / Thorough the fog it came / As if it had been a Christian soul / We hailed it in God’s name.” Ref: British Museum; Chris Mullen, fulltable.com.
