As convincingly prove our comparison images nr. 14-17 we are dealing here with a work of well-known Scottish, 19th century portraitist Robert Thorburn.
Robert Thorburn (1818 Dumfries, South Scotland - 1885 Tunbridge Wells, Kent) was born as a son of a tradesman. He received a high school education in his native town, showing already in his childhood years the aptitude for drawing. When he turned fifteen, Thorburn began studying under Sir W. Allan at the Drawing Academy of the Royal Institute of Scotland in Edinburgh, and was awarded his first two prizes there. In ca. 1836, he went to London, where he studied at the Royal Academy Schools. In order to support himself and his family, and to obtain easy recognition, he took up miniature painting. He exhibited between 1837 and 1884 at the Royal Academy and other locations.
