This sketch portrait of the legendary Irish patriot, Charles Stewart Parnell, ''Ireland's uncrowned King'', is typical of the economical yet meticulous graphic style of Charles Paul Renouard. He exhibited in London between the 1881 and 1907, when he gave his address as that of ''The Graphic'' magazine, whose articles he illustrated. The series to which this drawing belongs depicts the controversial Irish Home Rule Debate of June 1886.
