    Elizabeth Winifred "Jane" Martin (1902-1976) married Sir Kenneth MacKenzie Clark [Baron Clark of Saltwood], the well-known art-historian in 1927. They had met in 1925 while both were students at Oxford. She was known for her lavish entertaining and was president of the Incorporated Society of London Fashion Designers. Their social circle included most of the well-known artists, writers and politicians of the day. In later life she suffered from alcoholism and, though looked after by Clark, she died at the age of 74.

    Condition Report*: Work is taped to the mount with acid-free tape on the reverse corners; there appear to be a few tiny abrasions, noticeable in her eyes; some slight discoloration along the lower edges, with a grayish area in the lower left corner; some silver mirroring visible; a few very faint surface scratches visible under raking light; some foxing to the mount; overall this print appears to be in very good condition.
