Description

This work shows the artist (far right of fire) with his patron Sir Thomas Phillips. They were camped by the Dead Sea during an expedition to Greece, Turkey, Palestine and Egypt in 1842, on which Dadd was employed as draughtsman. The work was painted at Bethlehem Hospital, where Dadd was admitted after murdering his father upon his return to England. This painting is a famous discovery from the 'Antiques Roadshow'.
