Description

An illustration from 'The Family Friend' published by S.W. Partridge & Co. (London, 1875). A version of the much-reproduced painting by Abraham Solomon RA of an old soldier who is desperate to please a young lady with whom he is besotted. The lady has his sword and the soldier has the wool - in effect, he has turned from a being lion into a lamb! A contemporary critique was scathing: 'We candidly admit our regret at seeing this picture, and still more so to find it some time afterwards engraved, and so circulated over the country. Mr Solomon unquestionably made a mistake here, if Art is to subserve any good purpose.'!
