Austin and Woodford were brothers-in-law. Both were 1922 Rome Scholars (in Engraving and Sculpture respectively), along with Monnington, who was the 1922 Scholar in Decorative Painting. Austin’s portrait of Woodford was undertaken during 1926, their last year at the British School at Rome. A related, though slightly later, portrait of Woodford was included in The Fine Art Society exhibition Drawings and Prints by Robert Austin in 2001 (no. 12).
