English School portrait of a British soldier circa 1825, probably of a Foot Guards Regiment, standing at dusk before an encampment. Painted in oil on a prepared wooden panel bearing a label for T. Brown 163 High Holborn, and within a fine gilt frame of the period.
Thomas Brown was amongst the suppliers of canvases and panels to Sir Thomas Lawrence. In The Art-Union of January 1842, ‘Young’ Thomas Brown claimed that he, his father (also Thomas Brown, d.1840), and his father's predecessor (James Poole), had between them supplied all the Royal Academy’s Presidents up to that time. The Brown business was situated at 163 High Holborn, at the St Giles end, not far from Lawrence’s studio in Russell Square.
