Newman, Benjamin - self portrait
This miniature self portrait came from an estate sale associated with Benjamin Tupper Newman (1858-1940), an American artist more usually associated with larger landscape paintings. This is a self portrait and, like the adajcent portrait of his sister would have been based upon a photograph. Unfortunately the photograph is lost.
The two portraits and the photograph were acquired by the previous owner from the estate of Benjamin Tupper Newman.
