Doremus Missionary Collection
There are a number of Burmese objects in the accession list next to these two paintings. (Donation)
Two paintings possibly sent to Mrs Sarah Doremus, founder of the Women's Union Missionary Society (full title Woman's Union Missionary Society of America for Heathen Lands), by Miss Marston, a missionary to Burma. Since Missionary activity was halted by the government of the Indies in 1881 after the murder of de Vroom, it is likely that these two paintings pre-date 1880. Both in original condition, including their original gloss from polishing.
