Drop-head title. Verso blank. The appeal is intended to secure subscribers to one hundred and fifty one-guinea shares in a raffle to purchase Jackson's 'Dutch Girl'; the list of subscribers, headed by Sir Martin Shee, totals 50 guineas. Subscriptions were received by Messrs. Molteno and Graves', printsellers, and Messrs. Colnaghi and Comp[an]y. John Jackson died in 1831. His substantive studio and private collections were auctioned at a Christie & Manson sale in July 1831 (q.v.). Among the items at this sale was John Flaxman's pencil portrait of Eliza Soane which now hangs in the South Drawing Room at 13 Lincoln's Inn Fields, and which had presumably been lent to Jackson for use as a model for his posthumous portrait of Mrs Soane in Soane's Picture Room. The drawing was presented to Soane on the occasion of his knighthood in September 1831 by J.M.W. Turner, who had 'fortunately obtained it at poor Jackson's sale' in which it had evidently been included by mistake.
