Notes NOTES: An inscription on this print (which was taken from a painting) reads 'To Professor Lethaby with Arthur E. Henderson's compliments and thanks'. Henderson won the Owen Jones studentship in 1897 and went to Constantinople, where he remained until 1904. Presumably this painting dates from that period.
