'The Veteran's Pipe' by Eyre Crowe A.R.A. (1907). Reproduction from Royal Academy Pictures and Sculpture, 1907, p. 9

Medium: oil

Size: 25½ x 13 inches (64 x 41 cm)

Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1907

From January 1907 Crowe began referring to the ‘Chelsea Pensioner’ in his diary, which probably ended up with the new title ‘The Veteran’s Pipe’.

This painting was one of those remaining in Eyre Crowe’s possession at his death, and was sold for £4 14s at an auction of his remaining works at Christie’s in London on 18 March 1911.

It was offered for auction by Bonham’s of London three times in 2001 and 2002. At an auction on 5 February 2002, it sold for £320.
