The present work is related to the artist’s large 1889 watercolour of Windsor Castle now in the collection of the Tate Gallery. It also shows the castle as viewed from the Eton side of the River Thames although slightly further upstream and away from the moored boats which feature in the foreground of the Tate picture. There is another watercolour version of the Tate picture in the collection of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and a related sketch in the collection of the British Museum. Hunt spent a considerable time in Windsor in 1888, filling several sketchbooks. Two finished watercolours of the castle were later exhibited at the Royal Watercolour Society in 1889 and 1890.
