This foot-square head and shoulders portrait was probably bought in an antique shop because of the attractive composure of the sitter.

It hung in my mother-in-law's house since 1939 or earlier, and on her death it passed to my wife .   As we are both fond of the picture it now hangs in our home. 

The signature 'R S Forrest' is on the bottom right corner but there is no indication regarding the identity of the sitter, or where or when it was painted.

I'd be delighted if you could answer any of these questions."
