Lord & Lady Crafthole – Joseph Wright of Derby

June 9, 2010

I had to share this picture! It was taken at Beningbrough Hall last weekend which is, amongst other things, an outpost of the National Portrait Gallery.

On the top floor is a wonderful exhibit to teach children the art of portraiture in both painting and sculpture. This bit was against one wall with hangers full of different materials to drape, head gear of various sorts and a stuffed dog in front of a large smoked glass screen inside a gold frame. We had great fun.

The photo was taken with my camera (in shot in my hand). Crafthole is reading my book (the only one we had with us) so I think we’re holding what we would be were we to commission a real one; though we were bemoaning the general scarcity of props, especially a nice choice of wigs…
