  1. “Found”, the third image from the top, is a WELL KNOWN unfinished painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882). I haven’t checked any of the other paintings in your Frank Hector Tompkins article, but this one was obvious.

      I’m not entirely sure but it should be a copy made by Tompkins after Rossetti’s original painting. According to this site it can be “found” at the Fogg Museum of Art, Harvard:

      • Harvard’s Fogg museum was closed in June 2008 for renovation. It is scheduled to reopen next year. Their online museum search engine returns two portraits by Tompkins, but not “Found”. A Google image search returns many pages of hits for Dante Gabriel Rosetti’s painting, but just four hits for the Tompkins “copy”: Famous Artists, Wikigallery, American Gallery, and The Athenaeum. Three must be perpetuating an error made by the fourth. Wikipedia devotes an entire web page to Rossetti’s ‘Found’. I recommend you at least say Rosetti is the originator of the painting. And now I’ve gnawed this bone long enough.

  2. Me quito el sombrero ante este pintor. ¡Qué increíble la expresión en la carita de “In The Alley – Little Girl With Kittens”!

    “The Pink Shawl” is most attractive. Is this work in a private or public collection?
    Many thanks.
