Scope and content: Head-and-shoulders portrait of von Lenbach, holding a small dog. Lenbach has sketched an artist's palette and written around the edge. The text, in an archaic style of German, reads: 'Majesta Gladis [sic] I. in größter Bewunderung dero Sclave. Lenbach. München 7. Sept. 1893'. ('Majesta' should probably read 'Majestät', the correct dative form of the Germanised version of the Latin 'maiestas'.) Lady de Grey's label reads: 'Herr Von Lenbach the great Munich painter'. The photograph was originally in album volume 1, page 12.
