Works from the Bethlem Art and History Collections Trust, West London Mental Health NHS Trust and private collections are brought together to chart Dadd’s early career, travels to Europe and the Middle East, mental illness and work created while at Bethlem and Broadmoor Hospitals.

History painting may be used interchangeably with historical painting, and was especially so used before the 20th century. Where a distinction is made "historical painting" is the painting of scenes from secular history, whether specific episodes or generalized scenes. In the 19th century historical painting in this sense became a distinct genre. White, Harrison .

Magnificent Elizabeth, innocent Princes in the Tower, Mary Queen of Scots on the scaffold, and beautiful, tragic Lady Jane Grey—that is how we think of them. The spell they cast is one of reality amplified by the history of Victorian painting; yet many of these paintings have been ignored or despised by modern art historians and critics. In this pioneering study, Roy Strong shows how and why these works came into being. He separates the fanciful recreations from the accurate reconstructions of the past, pinpoints their sources and identifies such literary parallels as the medieval romances of Walter Scott, and charts the origins and course of the popular taste for history.
