John Melhuish Strudwick was a Victorian Pre-Raphaelite painter, the son of William Strudwick (1808–1861) and Sarah Melhuish (1800–1862). He attended St Saviour's Grammar School in Southwark. Disliking the idea of a business career, he took classes at the Royal Academy Schools in South Kensington, but was not regarded as a promising student. In the 1860s he was encouraged by a visitor, the Scottish genre painter, John Pettie, whose style he subsequently emulated.

His depiction of the ball (showing 500 of 2987 characters).
