Content Description

The picture at issue was painted more than twenty years ago as an experiment in the durability of colours used in "the process". Parts of the picture have since faded and it has been neglected, although not by Mrs Brown. He also does not regard it as a good exaqmple of his work. Should Mr. Watt's wish to use it he may.
