After training as an art master at the South Kensington Schools, Alexander Macdonald (1839–1921) ran the Oxford Art School from 1865. He was appointed first Ruskin Master at the Ruskin School of Drawing in 1871 and served as Keeper of the University Galleries between 1890 and 1908. This painting, 'Study of Sir Henry Wentworth Acland', 'Study of the Revd Henry George Woods, D.D.', and 'Study of the Revd Robert Harvey Charsley' were made as demonstrations while Herkomer was Slade Professor, between 1885 and 1895.
