  • About the artist
    James Pardon lived at Shoreditch in London and worked in Canterbury and later in Suffolk. He acquired a reputation as a painter of army officers: one of the portraits he exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1825 represented a musician of the 15th Hussars; and the National Army Museum in London owns a portrait of his that depicts another officer of that regiment. In view of the delicate handling and minute attention to detail in these works, it is not surprising that the artist was described as a miniature painter in the Royal Academy catalogue of exhibitors.
