Rupert Doone was a dancer, choreographer, producer and teacher of drama. Born in Redditch in the West Midlands, he ran away from home to London where he made a living as an artist's model. Aged 19 he went to live in Paris where he danced with the Ballet Suedois. One of his dance partners, Cleo de Merode, described him as having 'astonishing allure'. This picture was probably painted in Paris where Hamnett lived for a time.
