Happy Birthday Valentine Cameron Princep!! I really had to search to find an artist for today! This British Pre-Raephelite painter was born in India, in 1838. His father was a member of the Council of India for many years. He later was brought up in a home run by his mother for artistic “types” such as Dickens, Tennyson, Browning, etc. in Britian. He became a professor of painting, concentrating on portraiture and genre paintings. The painting here is titled The Queen Was in Her Counting House.
