Frank Dicksee - Harmony
His design for this picture originated in a sketching exercise at the Langham Sketching Club. The theme chosen for illustration by members of the club had been ‘Music’.
When exhibited at the RA in the same year it was so popular it hung in the place of honour opposite Millais' 'Yeoman of the Guard'. It was bought by the Chantry Bequest and is now in Tate Britain.
