In this three-quarter length portrait, Cameron sits with his arms folded and stares straight ahead to meet the gaze of the viewer.
John Worsley was one of the youngest war artists, and was captured by the Germans in Italy while accompanying an amphibious raid but continued to paint while a prisoner of war, with materials supplied by the Red Cross, assembling such an impressive portfolio that German admirals visited the camp to admire his work.
Both Worsley and Cameron were held in the German naval prison camp, 'Marlag O', where this portrait was painted in 1944. It is painted on a piece of bed-sheet as no canvas was available. See also BHC2954.
