The Resurrection. c1785. Commissioned the painting for St.George’s Church Barbados. Exhibited at The Royal Academy in 1786. When it arrived in Barbados, the President of the Legislative Council and the Rector had “fallen out”, and as a result, it was relegated to an outbuilding at Lower Estate Plantation, where it remained for more than 30 years. The damaged painting was eventually placed in the church in 1820.
