1910 Lady Duveen, née Salamon by François Flameng (Ferens Art Gallery - Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, UK)

According to his Wikipedia article, Lord Duveen came from a background venerated in today’s USA (at least on Wall Street, the corrupt island inside the Washington, DC beltway, and Chicago City Hall) and that would have been venerated in Tony Blair’s UK - wheeling and dealing entrepreneurial. He was an art dealer. Lord Duveen was associated with numerous first guided age figures and moved art across the Atlantic to the USA. A limited genealogical sketch of her is here.
