- Curator's comments
- Note in register: "The 'R.D' probably refers to Richard Dadd".
First described in 1919 by Campbell Dodgson as a portrait of Dadd by 'T. Phillips, RA', and later thought to be a self-portrait by John Phillip. Patricia Allderidge (The Late Richard Dadd 1817-1886, Tate Gallery, 1974, no.25) identified it as a portrait by Dadd of John Phillip (1817-1867), a fellow student of Dadd at the Royal Academy Schools, and later his brother-in-law. It is related to a pencil study of Phillip by Dadd, no.26 in the same exhibition.
