Description

Portrait of Sailor Dunn. Peter Churcher recalled, "This young fellow approached me. He volunteered his services as a model. He was aware that I was painting around the ship. He was a nice-looking chap so I agreed to paint him the following day. I think he sat for about three hours and came back the next afternoon for an hour or so".
