Corbould was an English artist, mainly of historical subjects and often in watercolour. In 1842 his watercolour The Woman taken in Adultery was purchased by Prince Albert. Nine years later he was appointed instructor of historical painting to the royal family. He continued to teach the royal family for twenty-one years.
