Mary Connally Morehead
Mary Connally’s portrait, like her husband’s, is not a painting by Browne himself. The artist L. Branson’s signature, along with the date, 1923, is painted on the bottom right corner. A sticker on the back reads, “Mrs. James Turner Morehead (Mary Elizabeth (Lily) Connally). Original done by William Garl Brown in 1870, this, a copy done by Bronson in 1923, now owed by William Harris Morehead Nelson. August 1935.” Like Letitia and Emma’s, Mary’s portrait has a rather extravagant background of red drapery and a dramatic landscape.
