Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Private collection, UK.

    It has been suggested that the sitter of this work is Alexander Pandia Ralli (1852-1927). In 1963 a portrait of 'Madame P. Radocanachi' by Bernardo Amiconi was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London (no. 260), this is most likely his mother. There are two other known portraits of the family, one each of his brother and sister as children. Amiconi was commissioned by a number of the premier Anglo-Greek families of the time, many of which had moved to England from their native Chios after the massacre of 1822.
