Additional Information about the Print

Exhibited at the R.E. 1907.

In Greek mythology, dryads were originally the spirits of oak trees (drys: ‘oak’) but the name became applied to all tree nymphs. Hamadryads are born bonded to a specific individual tree.

Provenance: by descent from the artist to his widow Lady Holroyd; to their son Michael; to Michael’s godson.
