Footnotes

  • Coburn recalled: 'I met him at a fancy dress ball in a costume that had belonged to his grandfather, and it was in this Georgian dress that I made the portrait which I must admit has always given me considerable satisfaction. It was a great pleasure to photograph Nicholson in his high-windowed studio. An artist to his finger tips, his collaboration was perfect, and his keen, intelligent interest made the making of his portrait an artistic adventure.'
