James Ashcroft Noble

Scope and Content

Watercolour of James Ashcroft Noble, [c.1895], by Edward Thomas. Also a 'copy' with note attached, possibly Myfanwy's hand: 'The framed portrait - oddly by Edward Thomas - was painted to give the Misses Simons - who ran Wintersdorf School - but there was an estrangement and it was never given. It is not known who made the interesting copy - it was among Irene McArthur's possessions'
