Notes and Queries | Info on Benjamin Haydon or Charles Stanhope?

Posted in notes & queries by Editor on February 7, 2015

27903215_1_xTo date, we’ve not done a lot of inquiry-oriented things here at Enfilade, but I’ve long thought it could be a useful forum for certain kinds of notes and queries. Here’s a question from Susan Dixon:

The La Salle University Art Museum in Philadelphia recently acquired a painting attributed to Benjamin Haydon (1786–1846). The staff have some cause to believe it’s a portrait of the Stanhope family. Charles Stanhope, the 3rd Earl Stanhope (1753–1816), invented a type of printing press that bears his name. He had three sons and a few daughters.

Might anyone be conducting research relevant to the painting?
