Family Portrait

A family portrait showing a gentleman and his five children. They are all wearing what appear to be dark coloured mourning clothes. People dressed like this when a family member died. One of the girls is holding up what looks like a mirror but could also be a framed picture. The mother is not in the family portrait - could the picture be of her - is she the person they are mourning?



Victorian (1837 - 1901)
