Portrait of Julia Marlowe by Aimé Dupont

Julia Marlowe (1865-1950), formerly Fanny Brough, spent her childhood in the Boneyfiddle district of Portsmouth, Ohio, where she lived with her mother Madame Brough, the keeper of a saloon and brothel. In the 1880s Marlowe became a world famous Shakespearean actress and supporter of women’s voting rights. Aimé Dupont, whose studio was in New York City, made the original black and white portrait of Julia Marlowe, which has been restored and colorized by Robin Clark.
