This painting is inscribed 'War Fund Feb 1900' and verso Artist's War Fund 1900. The painting is typical of Irving's style and subject and a very good example of his work.
The exhibition took place at the Guild Hall, London in early 1900 to raise funds for injured servicemen involved in the Boer War.
Queen Victoria contributed to the Artists' War Fund by offering for sale two works, one painted by her own hand, and the other by the late Prince Consort.
