  • About "Alice Kent Stoddard : The Puppies' Angel"

    This is a portrait of my grandmother. I have always wanted to see it--my heart just skipped a beat! I grew up seeing personal portraits that the artist had done for family members, but never this.

    I have a portrait of my father, Alexander Bloomfield McFadden, done by AKS when my father was perhaps 14 years old (maybe 1928?). Does anybody know what happened to AKS's records as it would be amusing to know what she charged for it?
