Catalogue Note

The sitter wears the ribbon and medal of the Masonic Order of the Red Cross. The backing paper is inscribed with a dedication to E.H. Crouch, written by H.S. Hall and dated 1919, stating the sitter is his grandfather, Henry Sanderson Hall, who died aged 92 in 1909. Despite this information the portrait would appear to have been painted at the very beginning of the 19th century.
