Portrait of Señorita Lola

Description (Brief)
Stephen Ferris’s note on the pencil drawing suggests that Señorita Lola might be Portuguese. Gerome Ferris was quite struck by the drawing and noted on it: “Magnificent! The history of a race.” It was made while Stephen and Gerome visited Spain in 1881.
