'Puck' - Baby JCM


'Puck' - Baby JCM

'Puck' - Sketch by Sir William Dyce of baby James Clerk Maxwell.

Dyce was the brother of Isabella Cay (née Dyce), wife of Robert Dundas Cay
(brother of JCM's mother- Frances Clerk Maxwell née Cay).

This sketch has JCM posed with what appears to be a stuffed toy owl, clearly
based on Dyce's 1825 drawing  of Shakespeare's character, Puck, from
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" (which showed Puck hugging an owl).
