Footnotes

  • Born in Leytonstone, Albert Chevallier Tayler studied at the Royal Academy Schools before undertaking a three year scholarship at the Slade. He continued his studies in France, under Jean-Paul Laurens and Carlos Duran, and would certainly have been exposed to the work of the Impressionists.
    One of the founders of the Newyln School, Tayler settled in Cornwall in 1885, where he continued to live for the next twelve years, while maintaining artistic ties in London, where he was a regular exhibitor from 1884. His varied output included historical genre, interiors, and numerous portraits. He was a keen cricketer, and proud to be an elected member of the Artists Cricket Club, where he played with and against many well-regarded contemporaries, such as Conan Doyle, P.G.Wodehouse, J.M.Barrie, and John Robertson Reid. His most famous cricket painting, 'Kent v Lancashire, Canterbury 1906' was recently sold at auction.

    The spontineity of the present lot would suggest it was painted from life, and makes an interesting comparison with Sir Philip Burne-Jones' portrait of Poynter, painted in 1909, which is in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery (NPG 1951).
