Gilded reeded s. with a butterfly; c.l. CRE WHISTLER, James McNeill; (American; 1834-1903) It was once thought that this portrait was of Spanish painter and guitarist, Dario de Regoyos (1857-1913). However, this assessment was rejected by Juan San Nicolas, (30 December 1990) on the grounds that Dario de Regoyos was smaller and thinner with a narrower face.
