This photo of NEW DEAL Washington, D.C., artist (Edwin) Dorsey Doniphan is being posted for informational purposes. Mr. Doniphan is the artist responsible for the painting of the little girl that hellokitty6811 has posted in Show and Tell.

WHEN MY RESEARCH IS COMPLETE ON THIS TOPIC, I WILL POST THE BODY OF OUR DONIPHAN FINDINGS on the hellokitty6811's 'Dorsey Doniphan' Show and Tell. That Show and Tell can be found at:

    Thank you kindly, scandinavian_pieces! Yes, Mr. Doniphan is shown standing in front of the large mirror, and with one arm behind his painting. He looks dapper with the pocket kerchief, and he does have a mustache.

    BY THE WAY, THIS IS THE ONLY PHOTOGRAPH OF DONIPHAN THAT I HAVE FOUND IN ALL THE TIME I'VE BEEN RESEARCHING HIM. QUITE REMARKABLE GIVEN HIS VERY PUBLIC CAREER. miKKo
