Olivia, I hope, is a face portrait with her wearing a scarf due to windy weather. The colors are mostly of pinks the scarf is long and blowing in the wind. She has dark hair and eyebrows. Her eyes look like a green/brown. The picture is signed as well as on the frame of gold is eteched his name Marcus Stone. Could this be the real thing. I will call her Olivia for as long as I own her anyway. I love your story of the book and then her being the woman in the play as well. The fact that Mr. Stone was on set means to me he secretly loved her. You think? Tell me how you found so much out? Do you own a piece as well? Carol

Carol have you purchased a painting of Olivia,or a portrait of someone else.Please describe her if you don't know, I may be able to identify her for you if not.Olivia was a character in Oliver Goldsmith's book "The Vicar of Wakefield" written in 1797, she became more well known in the 1878 when she was the main character in the play of same name, that was when the Painting of her was done because Marcus Stone designed the stage set.
The 1880 painting of Olivia by Marcus Stone, does anyone know or have any information about her.
