PORTRAIT OF DAME MILLICENT GARRETT FAWCETT (HOLDING A QUILL).

Images: (quill version) Richard Taylor Fine Art / (Tate version) Jonathan Russell.

One of two portraits Annie is known to have painted of Dame Millicent. From photographs of Dame Millicent, this is not such a good likeness, the lower part of the face being too narrow. The screen in the background is in different positions in the two versions, and she also appears to be wearing different rings (quill version left, Tate version right).

Listed in Annie’s posthumous studio sale catalogue, “[Lot] 82 PORTRAIT OF DAME MILLICENT FAWCETT, in academical gown 29 in. by 24 in.”

(The Tate version, aquired in 1930, is a slightly larger work.)
