Henry Treffry Dunn (British, 1838-1897)
"Portrait of the Lady of Shalott"
c. 1864, unsigned,
watercolor on card, framed, Sight 10 by 7 in., (not examined out of frame).
As can be seen through the bold similarity in style, Dunn was an art assistant to Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who once told him, "You are the best of fellows and my guardian angel". When the Uffizi asked Rossetti's brother to provide a portrait of Dante, he sent one painted by Dunn.
Appartently very good with very minor toning/fading; not examined out of frame.
