Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue
Philip Hermogenes Calderon (1833-1898), Historical and genre painter
Calderon was very tall, with long limbs and a beaky nose; he was said to look like ‘a Spanish gentleman translated into English’. Temperamentally he had ‘a personality that persuaded and even commanded’ but was also ‘very witty [with] an uncompromising spirit and withal most fascinating manner’ who ‘could be severe and unflinching and yet as tender as a child’.
