Lydia Latrobe Loring (1881-1948)
Watercolor on ivory
Overall: 2 7/8 x 2 1/4 in. ( 7.3 x 5.7 cm )
inscribed: on cardboard backing: "Carl & Fredrika Weidner/N.Y. 1900. No. 333/Miss Lydia Peabody Loring" signed: on left: "C. and F. Weidner"
The name Peabody in the cardboard inscription implies that the subject was related to that family, either through her mother in Baltimore or her father in Boston. In both cities the name was a prominent one and it may well have been part of her full name.
Gift of the Estate of Peter Marié
