The artist of the picture above is Lucas Fildes, a well-known English Victorian painter.
He is better known as the painter of the picture "The doctor" showing the doctor and father comforting
a dying daughter, often found hanging in doctors' offices.
Fildes is a distant relation on the Potts/Longbottom side of the family.
The 1920's print shown hung in my parents' house for at least 70 years (it was one of their wedding presents)
and now is in the diningroom at our South Bend home.
He also was the artist for Charles Dickens' last book "The Mystery of Edwin Drood".
