About the Johns Hopkins Portrait Collection

In the last quarterly issue of the Johns Hopkins Magazine, there is an article on the portrait collection from it's beginnings with the commissioning of a portrait by John Singer Sargent.
I was happy that the article included the painting I did of Dr. Barton Childs. If you would like to read the article, you may click on this link and go to the fourth main article titled, "The Greatest Veneration". http://magazine.jhu.edu/Portraits
