Engraving after the painting by Frederick Goodall (1822-1904). Goodall was taught by his artist father, Edward, and first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1838. After painting landscapes and rural scenes early in his career, a trip to Egypt in 1858-9 led to a change in direction. Thereafter Goodall painted mainly scenes from Egyptian life with Biblical associations. Goodall was elected RA in 1864 and enjoyed great popularity during this time, but his fortunes later declined greatly and in 1902 he was declared bankrupt.
