'The daughter of El Greco'; Lady in Fur Wrap


Albumen print | 18.2 x 14.1 cm (image) | RCIN 2081368

Photograph of a painting of a half length portrait of a woman, facing a quarter to the left and looking towards the viewer. She wears a head covering, fur wrap and multiple rings. 

At the time of the photograph, the painting was in the collection of Sir William Stirling-Maxwell (1818-78) and was attributed to El Greco (1541-1614). The painting was believed to be a portrait of El Greco's daughter. The identity of the painter and the sitter continues to be debated. The painting is still attributed to El Greco, but the sitter's identity is now unknown. The painting is now titled 'Lady in Fur Wrap' and is held at Pollok House, Glasgow.
