Frederick Sandys was born in Norwich and received his earliest lessons in art from his father, Anthony Sands, who was himself a painter. He influenced his younger sister Emma Sandys, who worked in the genre of the portrait mainly of children and of young women in medieval clothing.

In 1857 he achieved recognition with his satirical print parodying the painting “Sir Isumbras at the Ford” of the painter John Everett Millais (1829 – 1896).
