Study for ‘Nameless and Friendless’ by Emily Mary Osborn (1828-1925).

Dorothy Nott, a former Chair of the Friends,  writes about a remarkable small painting in the Gallery’s collection. ‘Nameless and Friendless’ was painted as a study for a larger work, which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1858 and is now in Tate Britain.
