This watercolour is an original illustration by Marcus Stone for Charles Dickens's 'Our Mutual Friend', depicting Mr and Mrs Lammle on Shanklin Sands on the Isle of Wight. Dickens had an interesting working relationship with Stone and granted him an unusual amount of freedom in the selection of passages for illustration. According to F. G. Kitton, 'in no instance did the novelist question the propriety of his selection'. This watercolour was used to create the engraving printed in Chapter 10 of the novel.
