Artist: George Cochran Lambdin
Title: Sketch Related to
Year: 1879
Media: Watercolor on paper, 16 x 20 inches
Description: Signed and dated at lower right: “Geo. C. Lambdin./79.”

Even as late as 1879 George Lambdin was relying on photographic models. His Among the Roses (1877; location unknown; illustrated in Weidner, George Cochran Lambdin, p. 41, no. 42) shows a floral landscape surrounding a maiden in white, her arms uplifted as she pins a rose to her hair. George’s 1879 sketch from the Lambdin family collection–shown here—so similar to the earlier Among the Roses, is clearly a related work. Perhaps this is another image of Agnes, based on a photograph taken in about 1862–65 when she was between nine and twelve years old, and reproduced on canvas much later. Although to the rest of the world this maiden in a landscape might have seemed a genre work, to Lambdin family members it was likely a cherished portrait.
