Crofts’s attention to detail extended to building up a large collection of uniforms and accessories as well as visiting the battlefield sites of Waterloo and other wars. He also became interested in the English Civil War, painting many scenes and it was his Royal Academy picture of 1877 “Oliver Cromwell at Marston Moor” that brought him critical acclaim. He was elected Associate of the RA 19 June 1878 and Academician 20 July 1896. In 1898, he became Keeper of the Royal Academy. Crofts died in London on 19 March 1911. He was buried at the All Souls Cemetery, Kensal Green.
Examples of his work can be found at the Royal Academy of Arts Collections, Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Dudley Museum and elsewhere.
The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
