Catalogue Note

This is a study of the central figure in one of Herbert’s nine mural paintings executed for the Peer’s Robing Room at the Houses of Parliament, The Judgement of Daniel. It depicts the exiled prophet Daniel interceding in the false trial of a woman named Susannah. Herbert worked on the decorative project for more than fourteen years from 1850 in a process known as stereochrome which did not last long before it began to darken (they are now almost invisible).
