- Early 19th Century (Creation)
Level of description
Extent and medium
1 item, Oil on canvas
Name of creator
Presumably painted for the school. The inscription cannot be much later than 1830, and is probably earlier. This is an early work by Reynolds who started his practice in 1815 in Owen's studio. He presumably got his commission through Owen's friendship with Cyril Jackson, Carey's patron at Christ Church. There is a three-quarter length version by Reynolds at Christ Church, and a smaller replica also in the school's collection.
