FEARON, Mrs. Walter

Half-length, a double jewel in the centre of her dress, signed upper right ‘A. Muller Ury.’

Present Whereabouts Unknown.


The sitter’s husband had opened a gallery at 25 West 54th Street, in about 1922, having previously worked for Henry Reinhardt & Son on Fifth Avenue, where Muller-Ury had exhibited his portrait of Mme. Pardo y Bareda in 1918.            

The sitter is possibly Eleanor Coles Titus (born 1890) of Burlington, New Jersey, who married Walter P. Fearon on January 28, 1909.

Muller-Ury records in his diary that Mrs Walter Fearon of New York went with him to the Huntington Library and Art Gallery on 3 February 1931.
