1920 portrait of Anne Finlay by Dorothy Johnstone

Very very ironically Anne Finlay is best known at the moment because of a painting of her: it is by Dorothy Johnstone and was used on the poster for the recent Modern Scottish Women Exhibition in Edinburgh. This portrait is now back at AberdeenArt Gallery. There is a letter from Anne Finlay in the Royal Academy archive which reveals that she lived at 155 Sheen Road. Will any kind Persephone reader living nearby please go past some time soon and pay homage to Anne.
