The Birmingham collection holds two drapery studies for the Black Prince which were executed three years apart (see also 1906P783). Brown put aside 'Chaucer at the Court of Edward III' (1851, oil on canvas, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney) while working on several other pictures but took it up again in 1850. This chalk drawing is the later one and includes the belt worn by the Black Prince in the final painting.
