white lady – during cleaning

A portrait of a former pupil, M A Brunner (Mrs H P Lowe) who attended the school from 1887-1889. The artist is Thomas Benjamin Kennington (1856-1916), a London based painter who specialised in portraits of the middle classes.

Kennington was an artist of some repute and exhibited internationally in Paris, Rome and throughout Europe, as well  as the Royal Academy in London.

The painting will be hung on the Mezzanine floor of the library, in place of the portrait of former Headmistress Norah Horobin.
