Walter Willis
Portrait of Samuel Coleridge Taylor, Age 7
England, 1881
National Portrait Gallery, London
People with an interest in Black British History, European Composers, or a basic education in Western Humanities are probably familiar with the many photographs taken of Samuel Coleridge Taylor, but this portrait of him at age 7 is beautiful, haunting, inexplicable, and kept under lock and key in London’s National Portrait Gallery.
