Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 36
This picture is the reverse of the morning scene. The season here is an autumnal one. The changing foliage and the shattered limbs of the decaying trees, show the storms which have passed over them. The warm rays of the setting sun still linger upon the turrets and spires, and light up the stained glass of the old Gothic church, towards which is borne, on a bier, the body of one of the warriors, who, in the morning, issued in full strength from the castle. The war-horse of the deceased, with empty saddle, follows the corpse of his master, and one warrior only, of the numerous band of the morning, brings up the rear. from the porch of the church is seen issuing a funeral procession of priests, coming forward to receive the body; and at a short distance, on one side, appears the same Palmer, who, in the morning, met and uttered his warning to the gay cavalcade.
