Winter, Elizabeth Campbell. Original Portrait Miniature. Signed "E.A. Pack, Stippler, 1914. William Winter (1836-1917) spent almost 40 years as drama critic at the New York Tribune. He published many books of poetry, criticism, and memoirs of his life and travels. He married Elizabeth Campbell in 1860. Using the pseudonym Isabella Castelar, she published The Spanish Treasure, a novel, in 1893. This portrait portrays her at about the time of her marriage (from a sticker on the back of the frame). It comes from a descendant, Robert Young (1927-2008), who wrote a biography of Roscoe (Fatty) Arbuckle (1994). The bulk of the Winter family papers (47 boxes) reside at the Folger Shakespeare Library. About 2 3/8 by 2 7/8 inches, in a black frame 5 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. A lovely original portrait miniature. $350
