Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Cataloger supplied title. No inscription. Presumably by Rupert Potter. Rupert Potter's inscription on two of the photographs in this group, absent any other marks of authorship, suggests the possibility that he made all of the photographs of Bertrams paintings. Possibly made at same time as CTSN Potter 1281, dated Apr 1904; though printed on a different paper, film format and setting appear the same. No external evidence is available to confirm this . Printed from same negative as CTSN Potter 1302.

Catalog number: 509


The eight photographs of Bertram's paintings are followed by the Heelis receipts.
