Signed drawing of John Frederick William Herschel by his daughter Louisa, done from life, probably when Louisa was in her teens (and her father in his 50s or 60s). Louisa was considered by the rest of the family to be their most accomplished artist. This is one of a series of drawings she, alongside her brothers and sisters, would have done as part of her artistic education. The Herschel daughters, and the sons before they went away to school, recieved a very intensive education at home with lessons from their mother, their father, a series of governesses and a number of specialist external tutors.
