"Farewell" ~ and "Preparing For A Walk" ~By ~ Philip Hermogenes Calderon ~ 1833 - 1898.
Preparing For A Morning Walk.
English painter of Spanish and French descent. His father,
at one time a Roman Catholic priest, was Professor of Spanish Literature
at King's College, London. Calderon studied at James M. Leigh's school
in London in 1850, then in Paris at the studio of François-Edouard
Picot. He lived near by in Montmartre, sharing a room with fellow art
student Henry Stacy Marks. He exhibited his first Royal Academy
painting, By the Waters of Babylon (London, Tate), in 1853 and thereafter became a regular exhibitor until 1897. He first made his name with Broken Vows
(London, Tate), exhibited in 1857. The painting shows a woman
overhearing through a garden fence her lover betraying her and was
painted in the detailed, clean-cut style associated with the
Pre-Raphaelites. It was successful with critics and public alike and was
engraved in 1859.
