I am a bit astonished. The portrait of Alice looks so unusal and modern for it's time. Does anyone know eho's the painter?

There is a different version, painted because Prince Albert didn't like the first one very much:

Very good likeness of Alice. She always look sort of thin.

Which of Alice´s children is the baby? Ernie? (I assume so because of the blue ribbons, but it´s just a shot in the dark)

The picture was based on a photo that I have seen before. The hairstyle is a giveaway too.

I find myself slowly falling in love with Alice while reading the first chapter of Four Sisters. What a progressive woman...

It's from the Royal Collection but doesn't give any info as to what they were doing. It looks like a royal version of camping. :)
