This illustration was to accompany 'Framley Parsonage', a serialised novel by Anthony Trollope published in The Cornhill Magazine (April 1860, p. 449). The scene depicts the moment where Lord Lufton meets Lucy Robarts for the first time: 'Now we may say she was fairly caught, and Lord Lufon, taking a pair of pheasants from the gamekeeper, and swinging them over his shoulder walked off with his prey.'
