A distinguished Derbyshire-born painter who maintained a studio and portrait practice in London for sixty years. He painted monarchs, aristocrats, generals, war heroes, captains of industry and historical events in their very making. He travelled the world as a young painter, produced portraits of royalty and was appointed US Army War Artist during the Second World War. This account of his contribution is brought to life through interviews and correspondence with members of his family and contact with others who knew him, adding greatly to its interest, authenticity and feeling for the context of the times.From the Author:
This is the story of an artist's unwavering self-belief, charting his rise from modest circumstances to a position of chronicler on canvas of some of the greatest moments in the history of the nation in the twentieth century. Beresford was by inclination a painter of animals and landscape, from necessity a portrait painter and, through sensing the historic moment, a recorder of events of ceremonial splendour, great solemnity, perilous national emergency and public rejoicing.
