More about this artwork
At the outset of his career Opie closely studied the work of Rembrandt. This is reflected in his feeling for dramatic effects of light and shade. He produced mainly portraits, with the sitters appearing, as here, against a dark background, but his contemporaries judged him one of the finest history painters in Britain.
