Familiar face from the past

CARDINAL Basil Hume this week received a portrait of Cardinal John Henry Newman from the President of the Newman Association, Eileen Cheverton, during a ceremony at Archbishop's House.

The Newman Assuciation is this year celebrating its 50th anniversary, having been founded in 1942 from the graduate division of the University Catholic Federation.

The portrait, in the style of Victorian portrait painter Sir George Redmond, was for many years in the possession of the late Fr Herbert Keldany, Chaplain to the Association from 1952 until 1964.

It was probably painted in the 1840s by Lady Julia Richmond under the direction of her husband Sir George Richmond. Newman was a family friend and frequently visited the Richmond home at Portman Square in London coincidentally the very spot where the Newman Association was to be founded nearly a hundred years later.

The portrait will hang in the reception room of Archbishop's House.
