The success of Nathaniel Hone
s famous painting The Spartan Boy when first exhibited at the Royal Academy, London in 1775 would solidify its reputation amongst art-buying public and critics alike . To satisfy demand for the work numerous prints were produced, such as one by William Humphrey and now in the British Museum collection. Following on from the example of fellow artists Hone later produced this present example based on his original painting. It was not unusual at the time for artists to exploit the popularity of a particular subject matter through repeated versions of the same painting.
John Camillus Hone, the artist
s young son is acting as the sitter for the portrait, dressed up as a Spartan youth. Hone regularly used his family members as models in his paintings producing a large series of portraits of his children and grandchildren. Though disguised in various costumes of allegorical figures from antiquity, the decision to use his own family introduces an element of individuality. We know the identity of these figures even if the function of the work is not an insight into their personality or emotions. Equally Hone manages to capture the innocence of his young sitters through their relationship with a small animal such as rabbit or dog. However in this example there is a somewhat darker tone, indicated by the ominous cloud-filled sky behind the boy. He is holding a fox which refers to the story of initiation undergone by Spartan youths in Ancient Greece.
