The tidying of the web site is complete. Only significant changes are …
PORTRAIT OF A LADY (title as used in The Illustrated London News) is no longer ‘attributed.’ After studying the paper I’m happy that the painting is correctly identified. There is an improved image on the web page.
The PORTRAIT OF HENRY JAMES, formerly ‘location unknown,’ is now known to be hanging in the Stranger’s Room at the Reform Club, London. Hope to visit some time, perhaps on an open day. Anyone reading this a member and happy (with permission from the Club) to take some photos? Especially interested in details such as the face, hair, hand/cuff and any trace of a signature.
Improved image for PORTRAIT OF LORNA, DAUGHTER OF HENRY MARTIN, ESQ.
Reverted to JOAN OF ARC for title of that picture. Although it may have originaly called Faith, it has long since been referred to as Joan of Arc.
THE LETTER is tentatively dated to c.1881, although the evidence is rather slim, simply Annie’s use of her ‘ALR’ monogram.
