This portrait of Oldfield Thomas by John Ernest Breun (1862-1921) depicts one of the most significant mammal collectors of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Oldfield Thomas made a major contribution to the development of the mammal collections at the Natural History Museum, so it is very fitting that he is shown here proudly holding the skull of a gazelle.
