    Dunn was born in Truro, Cornwall, and studied at Heatherley's Art School in London. He was Dante Gabriel Rossetti's studio assistant for twenty years during which time he produced a number of replicas of Rossetti's work.

    This drawing is copied from Rossetti's red chalk composition Michael Scott's Wooing, dated 1866, now in the William Morris Gallery, Walthamstow.
