A Quiet Read (1859). George Winchester (British, 1814 fl. to 1866). Oil on canvas. Exhibited: British Institution, 1860.
“The reason for the artist’s absence? He has had a painting rejected by the Royal Academy for the summer exhibition of 1859, the notice is under his palette — and has immediately gone up to town to submit this picture to the British Institution for their February show in the new year instead. Their notice is under his hat. The painting was exhibited there in 1860, for sale at 15 guineas.”
Armand Schönberger - Self Portrait, with His Daughter Vera 
Armand Schönberger (Galgóc, 1885 - Budapest, 1974) was a Hungarian painter. The highlight of Schönberger artistry came in the late 1920s and early 1930s. This period was characterised not only by the creation of several masterpieces with an individual character, but also by many public appearances - Schönberger exhibited his work in several galleries in Hungary and abroad. In 1929, his work was exhibited in Nuremberg at an exhibition where contemporary Hungarian art was all the rage.
