Victor Musgrave was one of the leading London art dealers during the 1950s and 1960s. He ran Gallery One, where he showed many important European artists in London for the first time, including Yves Klein and Rufino Tamayo. Musgrave organised a controversial exhibition of 'Outsider Art' at the Hayward Gallery in 1979. He founded the Outsider Art Archive.This portrait was not a formal commission, but came about as the result of the artist's friendship with, and admiration for, the sitter.
