Notes:
Ten drawings in pen and black ink, six of which depict interior views of Grafton Lodge, showing the breakfast parlor, dining room, study, drawing room, bedroom, and southwest bedroom. Three of the drawings are signed Virginie (or Virginia), and one is dated May 2nd, 1844. Four additional drawings are perspective studies: Square pavement in parallel perspective; Square pavement in oblique perspective; Proportionate increase of extent seen through an aperture; and an untitled drawing of a cruciform object. The drawings of rooms also employ the technique of perspective. All drawings appear to be the work of a late adolescent.
