Lot Details
Photograph of Browning, signed and dated on the mount "Robert Browning, Nov. 8. '86"; on original photographer's mount, inscribed on the reverse "Photographed/ by W.H. Grove/ 9, Pembroke Square/ Kensington", platinotype, some light staining to mount and image, dust-staining to card mount, size of image 580 x 110 mm., 8 November 1886


  • A STRIKING IMAGE OF BROWNING, SIGNED BY THE POET – another example of this print is in the National Portrait Gallery, where it is described as 'Photographed at home' although misascribed the date 1889. Included in the lot is the signature ("Robert Browning") and conclusion from an autograph letter, seemingly paying tribute to a contributor to the Saturday Review and Westminster and ending: "acquaintance with a very clever and distinguished man".
