Posted by admin on Oct 3, 2013

A lost portrait of one of the UK’s earliest feminists has been bought by the National Portrait Gallery. The portrait, which is of Lady Anne Clifford by William Larkin and was painted in 1618, was recorded only in Clifford’s diary entries until it was discovered eight years ago in a German private collection by gallerist Mark Weiss.

The Gallery bought the portrait for £275,000, £70,000 of which was given by the Art Fund and more than £45,000 from private donations.
