Nathaniel Brayne was handiman to the Knighton-Hammond family in Ditchling. The portrait in pastels was used to illustrate the art of pastel painting for a series of articles on the subject for The Artist Magazine in 1940-41. The portrait is an example of the skill of pastel painting and how the artist creates soft lines and blends the colours to model the head and clothing.
