Description: MISS HELEN LINDSAY SIGNED WITH A MONOGRAM (LOWER RIGHT) OIL ON CANVAS 28 X 191/2 IN. (71.1 X 49.5 CM.) PROVENANCE SAMUEL COOMBES, LONDON. LITERATURE TIMES, 29 APRIL 1891, P. 10 TIMES, 8 MAY 1891, P. 13. ROBERT HENREY, A CENTURY BETWEEN, 1937, (ILLUSTRATED FACING P. 230). EXHIBITION LONDON, NEW GALLERY, 1891, NO. 5. NOTES THE SITTER WAS THE YOUNGER DAUGHTER OF SIR COUTTS LINDSAY, LANDOWNER, AMATEUR ARTIST, AND FOUNDER OF THE FAMOUS GROSVENOR GALLERY IN 1877. HER MOTHER WAS BLANCHE FITZROY, DAUGHTER OF THE HON. HENRY FITZROY, FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS, AND HANNAH MAYER ROTHSCHILD. THE LINDSAYS MARRIED IN 1864; THEIR FIRST DAUGHTER, EUPHEMIA (EFFIE), WAS BORN ON 15 MAY 1865, AND ANNE HELEN ARRIVED ON 18 OCTOBER 1868. HELEN'S EARLY LIFE WAS DIVIDED BETWEEN HER PARENTS' LONDON HOUSE IN GROSVENOR SQUARE AND THEIR COUNTRY SEAT, BALCARRES, AT COLINSBURGH, FIFE, BUT IN 1882 THE LINDSAYS SEPARATED AND THE GIRLS MOVED WITH THEIR MOTHER TO A HOUSE IN HANS PLACE, KNIGHTSBRIDGE. CHARLES EDWARD PERUGINI WAS A NEAPOLITAN WHO SETTLED IN LONDON IN 1863. HE WAS A PROT‚G‚ OF FREDERIC LEIGHTON, POSSIBLY HIS STUDIO ASSISTANT, AND THEIR STYLES HAVE MUCH IN COMMON. IN 1873 HE MARRIED KATE DICKENS, DAUGHTER OF THE NOVELIST AND WIDOW OF THE PRE-RAPHAELITE PAINTER CHARLES ALLSTON COLLINS. LADY LINDSAY HAD PROBABLY MET HIM IN THE EARLY 1880S WHEN HIS WIFE EXHIBITED AT THE GROSVENOR, BUT THE LINK MAY HAVE GONE FURTHER BACK SINCE BOTH PERUGINI AND COUTTS LINDSAY HAD STUDIED UNDER ARY SCHEFFER IN PARIS. POSSIBLY PAINTED TO MARK THE SITTER'S 'COMING OUT', THE PORTRAIT WAS EXHIBITED AT THE NEW GALLERY IN 1891. THE TIMES DESCRIBED IT AS 'CHARMINGLY PAINTED', THE ARTIST'S 'REFINED HANDLING' FINDING A 'HAPPY OPPORTUNITY'. THREE YEARS PREVIOUSLY THE GALLERY HAD BEEN OPENED IN REGENT STREET AS A SUCCESSOR TO THE GROSVENOR, WHICH HAD BEEN AILING FOR SOME TIME. THE LINDSAYS' SEPARATION ROBBED IT OF BLANCHE'S FINANCIAL SUPPORT, THE HIGH 'AESTHETIC' TONE DETERIORATED, AND IT HELD ITS LAST EXHIBITION IN 1890. BLANCHE HERSELF, A TALENTED AMATEUR ARTIST WHO HAD EXHIBITED REGULARLY AT THE GROSVENOR, TRANSFERRED HER ALLEGIANCE TO THE NEW GALLERY, AS DID BURNE-JONES AND OTHER LEADING LIGHTS. IT IS TEMPTING TO ASSUME THAT THE ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT HELD BY HELEN IS PART OF THE LINDSAY COLLECTION, BUILT UP BY A FAMILY WHICH HAD A HISTORY OF CONNOISSEURSHIP; BUT IN VIEW OF HER PARENTS' SEPARATION NINE YEARS BEFORE THE PORTRAIT WAS PAINTED, THIS SEEMS UNLIKELY, AND THE BOOK MAY SIMPLY REFLECT THE FACT THAT MOTHER AND DAUGHTERS TURNED TO RELIGION FOR CONSOLATION DURING BLANCHE'S LATER YEARS. WE HEAR OF HELEN EMBROIDERING A VELVET COVER FOR THE MOTHER'S GREEK NEW TESTAMENT WITH THE WORDS 'HE RESTORETH MY SOUL'. AFTER BEING PRESENTED AT COURT, EFFIE TRAINED AS A DEACONESS AND MARRIED A CLERGYMAN, THE REV. T. SELBY HENREY. HELEN, WHO WAS ALMOST SLAVISHLY DEVOTED TO HER MOTHER, REMAINED UNMARRIED UNTIL AFTER BLANCHE'S DEATH IN AUGUST 1912, BUT SHE THEN WENT AS A MISSIONARY TO CHINA AND EVENTUALLY MARRIED GEORGE RAMSAY, A SCOT TWENTY YEARS HER JUNIOR WHO FOUNDED HIS OWN RELIGIOUS SECT. THE COUPLE LIVED AT THORPE ST ANDREW, NEAR NORWICH, WHERE HELEN DIED IN 1955 AT THE AGE OF EIGHTY-SEVEN. WE ARE GRATEFUL TO MRS VIRGINIA SURTEES FOR HER HELP IN PREPARING THIS ENTRY. HER BOOK COUTTS LINDSAY (1993) SHOULD BE CONSULTED FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE SITTER'S FAMILY BACKGROUND.View additional info
