Catalogue Note

Wynfield studied with J.M. Leigh and lived in St. John's Wood, London, where he founded the St. John's Wood Clique. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1859 and 1887, displaying pictures inspired by sixteenth and seventeenth century British history. Wynfield was also an important Victorian photographer, and is considered a pioneer in this field.
