Footnotes

  • Charles Hervé is recorded as having resided at many central London addresses, including 138 Regent Street, however, there is no mention of him having lived at 148 Regent Street as indicated on the present lot. In British Silhouette Artists and their Work, 1760-1860, Sue McKechnie suggests that the artist's second Christian name may have been Samuel.
