A Quest for a Cousin, from "Illustrated London News"

After James Abbott Pasquier British

Not on view

Pasquier was a skilled watercolorist who designed prints for British periodicals and illustrated books. Here he represents a young woman accompanied by her father or uncle who seeks a lost relative who may have worked as an artist's model. They stand in a painter's studio and examine a painting that shows a beautiful girl arranging her hair.
