The Betrothed, Folio no. 2 in the John Ludlow Morton Album
Brown ink and wash on paper, bound into album
8 1/8 x 7 1/4 in.
Signed and inscribed at middle left in brown ink: "Inman del. 1826."; below at center: "'I heard a distant sound' said Eveline, -- 'I thought / I heard it -- hark!, it comes again' -- / Page 79 of the Betrothed. / Tales of the Crusaders."
This portrait is attributed to Henry Inman on stylistic grounds; the date is assigned on the basis of the design of the coat and because Inman at the time was executing similar small portraits.
