  1. How is that I have never heard of Reid, especially once he was at the Julian and the Colarossi Academies in Paris. I knew ALL the students who studied there. Perhaps images of ordinary families, as opposed to the aristocracy, weren't considered important enough.

    By the way, who owns these paintings now?
