Henry Ward studied at Goldsmiths College and undertook an MA at Winchester School of Art. His work has been seen in numerous international exhibitions in New York and London.

The portrait shows Professor Nadey Hakim performing his pioneering procedure the ‘finger assisted' nephrectomy, a method of kidney removal for living donors with significantly improved levels of safety and patient recovery. The painting was made from sittings, photographs and sketches and refers to Rembrandt's The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicholaes Tulp. It will eventually hang in the Museums of Surgical Science, Chicago.
