James Turner Morehead
James Turner’s portrait is distinctive in Blandwood’s collection of Browne’s work. It was actually painted by an unknown artist who copied it from Browne’s 1872 portrait of Gov. Morehead’s second son. On the back, the artist has written “D’apres [after] Wm. Garl Browne Feb. 1872.” It is an austere portrait that de-emphasizes disfigurement of his right cheek caused by an injury received during the Civil War.
