    "........Still, mention must be made of the well known "Duchess of Sutherland" - she of abnormal height - by Mr. Sargent ; the highly attractive "Princess Mary" by Mr. Shannon - a sweet, unaffected portrait ; Mr. W. B. Ranken's challenging rendering of "The Lady Maud Hoare"....."

Special thanks to Wendy & Gordon Hawksley, of Sheffield, England, friends of the JSS Gallery, for sending me the exceprt of the review in the Daily News.
