Phillips, Henry Wyndham, 1820-1868 :Sir J Richardson (Father of Sarah Harriet Richardson, G A Selwyn's wife) / Henry W Phillips, 1837.
Shows the English judge Sir John Richardson, father of Bishop George Augustus Selwyn's wife, seated in an upright wooden chair with armrests and maroon leather upholstery. In his right hand he holds a piece of paper and in his left hand, resting in his lap, he holds a pair of reading glasses. A small table stands at the right, holding a sloped bookstand supporting an open book, another open book on the tabletop, and a small handbell. Richardson wears a double-breasted jacket with a high wide collar.
Based on the example of the watercolour painting of his wife (see notes on verso of A-439-017), this watercolour is likely to be a copy by the artist, made from the lithograph reproduced from the artist's original painting. There is an example of the lithograph at A-439-019.
