Marcus Bicknell, left, presents oil painting of Edward Berry to Daniela Gandolfi (right) of the Museo Bicknell, BordigheraJust back from the conference about my great grand unce Edward Elhanan Berry (1861-1931) and his wife Margaret in the Museo Clarence Bicknell, presided by Professor Dott. Daniela Gandolfi. I presented some original research on the Berrys drawn from family papers which I have, including the fact that the Berrys had a daughter - adopted - and that Edward had a little sister Clara of which we, before a recent UCL Bloomsbury project research, knew nothing. I was also honoured to be able to present this oil painting of Edward Berry by Herbert Arnould Olivier (1861 – 1952), apparently one of three in existence.
