Prince Arthur, 1st Duke of Connaught (1850-1942)
 
Photograph of the young Prince Arthur, late Duke of Connaught (1850-1942), bare-chested, with his head leaning on his right hand and his left arm resting on cushion in front of him.
 
Prince Arthur was born at Buckingham Palace on 1 May 1850. He was the seventh child and third son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and enjoyed a long life of distinguished military and public service. In this photograph, taken by Caldesi in 1857, the Prince has adopted a pose reminiscent of the two putti in Raphael's 'Sistine Madonna'.
