This beautiful portrait is by Augustus John of his son Caspar, painted in 1909. After a fairly unconventional childhood, Caspar went on to join the navy and eventually became Admiral of the Fleet in 1962. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caspar_John
Phil, (Dany's husband) saw this painting in The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and was transfixed, as it strongly resembles our son Edward. 
I managed to order a print from a company called Magnolia Box who specialise in custom fine art prints, starting at £15. It arrived this morning and I am so delighted. They have hundreds of paintings to choose from and run a really fast efficient service. Highly reccommended. www.magnoliabox.com/
