Alice Boyd - William Bell Scott

signed with her monogram l.r.
oil on metal, en grisaille
16.5 x 16.5" (octagonal)
after Alexander Munro
As a memorial to her lover, Alice painted this copy of a culpted portrait of William by Alexander Munro that was exhibited at the RA in 1854. The original sculpture was put on William's tomb in Old Dailly churchyard, but Alice made this copy.
