Notes:

The swelling veins and tendons of his neck, and the slight clenching of his supporting hand, alone give token of the might of that energy which has sustained him hitherto. His face is fixed and rigid, and his eyes gaze on vacancy without an object, past or future. There is no fear there, but there is no hope; it is not despair, it is not defiance or resignation, nor yet expectancy, but a sullen, passionless, and pulsing awaiting his inevitable doom. [Pp. 408-9; exhibited under heading: "Paintings." The word "awaiting" appears in italics in the catalogue.]
