This painting retains what appears to be its original frame.
Pyle executed two basic types of illustration: black-and-white line drawings and oil paintings that were to meet the requirements of the developing technologies of photographic reproduction and color printing. Those intended to be reproduced in black and white, like The Tory Refugees, illustrated here, were painted in monochrome.
