          Seddon and his pre-Raphelite friend Holman Hunt journeyed to the Holy Land in 1854. His painstaking, sun-lit detail shows the Mount of Olives and the Garden of Gethsemane, the site of Christ’s anguish before the crucifixion.

          Artist details

          Painter Thomas Seddon originally trained as a furniture designer and draughtsman, but discovered his passion for painting in the late 1840s. In 1850 he co-founded a school of drawing for working men. In 1852 he exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy. In that year, too, he visited Dinan in France and at the end of 1853 travelled to Alexandria to join his friend William Holman Hunt on a tour of Egypt and the Holy Land. This led to a series of landscapes in keeping with the Pre-Raphelites.
