An old man sat in a chair facing view with a large beard; a map on the wall. 'The Tablet' of 27th June 1874 reports on the Royal Academy Exhibition: 'Mr. Ouless produces three works, the principal being a superbly painted head of Mr. William Sale. The flesh tones are admirable, and the feeling of the entire works forms a strong contrast to the number of painted shadows on the walls'.
