The background scene identifies the College through the 200-year-old Wadham beech tree and a night sky to convey the last scene from 'The Marriage of Figaro', with the Countess and Figaro illuminated by stage footlights (this refers to Lord Moser's favourite opera and the Royal Opera House of which he was chairman). The sitter came to London from Berlin in 1936. He was a statistician then Chair in Social Statistics at the London School of Economics.
