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 in a private collection in London.
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.1880, although the evidence is rather slim, simply Annie’s use of her ‘ALR’ monogram.
