Clarkson Stanfield (1793-1867)
Stanfield had an early career as a seaman before becoming a celebrated painter of theatrical scenery and moving dioramas, and subsequently the leading marine artist of his time after Turner. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1820 and this portrait was commissioned by his early patron, George Watson Taylor MP. It was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1829, the year of Stanfield's Presidency of the Society of British Artists, and may have been intended to commemorate this. In 1844, Stanfield became the first Honorary Curator of Pictures at Greenwich Hospital, looking after the works that form the core of the art collection of the National Maritime Museum.
