W W Ouless was born in St Helier the son of the marine artist Philip Ouless of French decent. His earliest works were in the story-telling manner, but his reputation was made with his portraits of many leading members of Victorian society. A collection of his well-known portraits can be found in the National Portrait Gallery and include people such as the Prince of Wales (1900) and Charles Darwin. The restoration of this painting is sponsored by TSB Bank in 1996. (Sophie Gorman, 2009)
