While it might be assumed that the Brodsworth work is a painted copy of Northcote’s picture, the existence of an almost identical version of the same subject, of almost exactly the same size, in Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery (DONMG: 139.43) suggests otherwise. It would seem likely that the assumed paintings at Brodsworth and Doncaster are in fact polygraphs or polygraphic copies as issued by the Polygraphic Society of London. Founded by Joseph Booth, they held exhibitions and published catalogues of their reproductions probably from 1786.
