General notes

Pages numbered 63-65 in pencil UR each page, presumably by Alexander Turnbull Library, National Library of New Zealand staff, after it's donation in 1979.

These pages are part of the contents of a file with the reference number MS-Papers-1893-2, Alexander Turnbull Library, National Library of New Zealand.

The location of the inscribed page [page 2] is Saint-Michel-sur-Orge, Essone, Paris, France.

These animal studies show an assimilation of the academic study of anatomy absorbed at the W. Frank Calderon School of Animal Painting, London, England, which Scales attended 1908-1912, and her later use of simplified forms.

Possibly torn from the same sketchbook as Untitled [Pastoral Scene] [BC145].
