Sitter in 10 portraits
Artist of 1 portrait
As an artist, some of Redgrave's most successful paintings drew attention to what he described as 'the trials and struggles of the poor and the oppressed'. He was a driving force behind the foundation of the South Kensington Museum (later the V&A), and the reform of British art education, holding several administrative and teaching positions at the Government School of Design (later the Royal College of Art).
