John Hodgson Campbell (1855-1927)
Portrait of Henry Hetherington Emmerson

Medium: Oil on canvas
Size without frame: 21.0" x 14.0"

Despite beginning his career as a portraitist then turning to landscape examples of Campbells portraits are exceptionally scarce. This is a particularly nice and historic example and is inscribed on the front 'life class drawing of the President'and signed and further signed and inscribed verso 'To Aaron Watson esq 1896' Emmerson, president of The Bewick Club, died a short while before this date which would therefore be when gifted. Both Campbell and Watson were staunch members of The Pen and Palette. Full of character and lovely original frame.
