 I'm going to Boston soon -- after this lecture and opening is over -- to see the Matisse exhibit, but will examine the OW Holmes collection and get back to you on the view.

I've been in touch with Roger since 2014.Peter's listing is close at hand and very useful. My own collection of 300 plus GWW's has provided some new information.

If you'll send me your mailing address, I'd be pleased to send a complimentary copy of a leaflet to be handed out on June 22... Best, Edward.

In the Dr. O.W. Holmes collection in the BMFA , he collected his only surviving genre stereograph -  later reflection of a woman

Mr Ross -- I have your article about GWW and enjoyed it very much. I'm doing an exhibition and lecture in 21 days, "The Artistic Mr Wilson." I'd like to be your "friend"

, but not sure which button to push...

I acquired this stereoview on eBay recently, convinced that I recognised the dressing table mirror from another photograph. After a good deal of hunting in my library I was delighted to find that the photo I had in mind was in the V&A collection, catalogued as Academic Study by John Watson c.1850. Having enlarged the stereo, one can see that the dressing table and mirror are definitely the same in both photos. And, as the curator at the V&A put it "If it is the same model, how lovely to see her face, after all these years of her being so mysterious."
