One of 300 copies. Matted and framed. Fine condition with minimal fading of the signatures. Sargent's portrait was commissioned in 1913, by a group of James's English friends, in honor of his seventieth birthday. James agreed to sit on condition that the portrait would be given to the National Portrait Gallery (if they would accept it, which they did). James later arranged for one of these prints to be sent to all those who had donated to the celebratory event. Item #28829
