This portrait of Maida Castelhun Darnton (1872-1940, granddaughter of Paulus Roetter) was painted by Swedish-American artist Henning Ryden (1869-1939).  Darnton was a suffragist, author, dramatic critic, and lecturer, and her husband, Charles Darnton, was a theatre critic and 20th Century Fox screenwriter (and granduncle of John Darnton who wrote Neanderthal and The Darwin Conspiracy).  The painting will be reproduced to matte paper and put in a black frame of approximately 21" by 27".  My wife is so enamored by this painting that she refers to Maida as the queen of our living room.


NOTE:  The prices cover the costs of physically restoring, scanning (or oversized photographing), digitally restoring, reprinting, framing, handling, and shipping (which is included and not tacked on separately). I then round up the totals to help cover the costs of restoring more artwork.


QUALITY: Every physical order will look better than what is on the website. The images here in the shop are greatly reduced in size and quality, and they're cropped to fit the boxes.  I didn't put watermarks on them because I want you to be able to save the images for free for your own personal use.  But the actual framed prints will be done from extremely high-quality files.  From a step or two back, the reproductions are near indistinguishable from the originals.
