    Robert Fowler (1853–1926) was a Scottish born, Liverpool trained painter who was famed for his mythological scenes. Much of his work was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, notably Frederic Leighton, George Frederic Watts and Albert Moore.

    This painting was one of a number portraits of industrialists, clinicians, artists and civic dignitaries produced post-Great War. David Jagger met the painter Robert Fowler through his elder brother, the sculptor, Charles Sargeant Jagger who had a studio in the same building as Fowler on Tite Street in Chelsea. David Jagger was impressed by Fowler's ability to act as a conduit to a wide variety of aspiring poets, prose-writers, musicians and painters. Both artists were members of the Chelsea Arts Club and remained friends until Fowler's death in 1926.

    We are grateful to Timothy Dickson for preparing this catalogue entry. This work will be included in a forthcoming catalogue raisonné of David Jagger currently being prepared by Timothy Dickson and due for publication in the autumn 2017.
