Prompted by MAG director Harris Prior, Smithsonian curator Robert Stewart investigated further and came to the conclusion that the American-born portraitist Henry Benbridge was the true artist. Shortly thereafter, this portrait was loaned to an exhibit of Benbridge’s work in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. Stewart described it as “one of the nicest of what I call his ‘portraits in the small.’” The elongated forehead, proportionately small body, and decorative plant matter in the foreground are hallmarks of Benbridge’s style.
