Alex Veness speculates about one woman's motives for having her portrait taken, and for whom the portrait was intended. His enquiry introduces questions about the role of sentiment and emotion in the interpretation of portraiture. Perhaps all portraits had sentimental meaning for some viewer, which is now lost - or is it? As temporally distant and impersonal viewers, can we respond sentimentally to the portrait?
