Philip Calderon

Philip Hermogenes Calderon was a British painter of Spanish and French parentage who produced genre paintings, often of a rather sentimental kind, in a style influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites. This one is entitled 'Half Hours with the Best Authors', presumably with humorous intent; otherwise known as 'The Siesta'. It dates from 1866.

'Letter from Daddy', 1873, I find this attractive for the same reasons as the one above.
