"Calderon's painting of a young boy, in his cricket whites, with clear complexion and cherubic face, was the perfect image to represent the Victorian view of children as models of truth and honesty. We are thrilled with the reception of the painting at the sale and particularly pleased that the price realized will help improve resources and facilities at the primary school which owned it and where it hung for so many years."
