John Everett Millais attrb. - Portrait of a young Girl

Bequeathed by Mrs W.F.R. Weldon, 1937; WA1937.81.

Until recently, the attribution to Millais was accepted without question and the sitter identified as Mary Millais, the artist's daughter. Both artist and sitter are now doubtful, though no convincing alternatives have been proposed.
