|A signed cabinet card portrait of artist Charles L. Pott, seen here wearing the uniform of the Artists’ Volunteers. The regimental badge can clearly be seen on his collar. Designed by William Wyon, the Queen’s medallist, it consisted of two heads: Mars, God of War, and Minerva, Godess of Wisdom, the latter chosen to represent the fine arts.
Photographed by the society photographer Herbert Rose Barraud.
From an album presented to Thomas Dolling Bolton by Colonel Edis and the officers of the 20th Middlesex Artists’ Rifle Volunteers in gratitude for his hospitality at Easter 1895. Thomas Bolton was for many years the M.P. (Liberal) for N.E. Derbyshire.
The portrait has been signed ‘Charles L. Pott / Lieut.’ by the sitter in ink recto in the lower margin.
condition: The print shows some imperfections but has excellent tonal range. The mount is in pristine condition.
