Given by Mrs Fuller in accordance with the wishes of her late husband, The Reverend Arthur R. Fuller, grandson of the artist.

Anna Foldsone supported her mother and eight brothers and sisters painting miniatures after her father's death. Her husband only agreed to her continuing to paint professionally if she had no male sitters.
