Ye Bayreuth Pilgrimage by Walter Crane, RWS 1845-1915. Ink drawing. Source: Rowley, Fifty Years of Work without Wages, p. 162. Rowley comments, “I made a most delightful pilgrimage with Walter Crane, his wife and daughter, and two others, to Bayreuth in 1894. I cannot do better than insert some of his holiday skits on that occasion. These, with one other, show Crane in his "unbuttoned" manner, as Beethoven said of his freer and finer effusions. The fine Egyptian design of my poor self on a camel with retainers is a masterpiece, although there is little truth in it” (167).
