Additional Information about the Print

Exhibited at the R.E. 1904.

Katherine Mary Woodthorpe was born on Christmas Day in 1840 at Aveley, Essex. Her father who had served in the Royal Navy and travelled to Canada as a fur trader, returned to England to settle on the ancestral Fanns Farm, near Aveley. On his death the farm first passed to his brother, and subsequently, in 1888 to Katherine.

She never married and lived till 1929. She was sixty-six when Holroyd etched her portrait, which perhaps resulted from his commission for the Aveley parish church of St Michael’s, for which he had painted the altar triptych and designed a window.

Provenance: by descent from the artist to his widow Lady Holroyd; to their son Michael; to Michael’s godson.
