[See blog 205 A Sea Nymph by Charles Shannon.]
|Charles H. Shannon, 'A Sea Nymph'|
|Monogram 'CHS', for Charles Hazelwood Shannon, 'A Sea Nymph'|
|Label on the back of 'A Sea Nymph'|
The label tells us that the firm had versatile ambitions, as was usual: they did 'restoration & renovation of oil paintings & engravings', they could supply 'old frames, copied, cut down & enlarged', and they had 'mouldings for the framing of photographs, etchings, watercolours, engravings, etc., always in stock'.
The painting might have had an interesting provenance: when was it sold by Shannon? Who acquired it? Who had it framed (and perhaps later reframed)?
