About Dorothy Stanley
Dorothy Tennant (22 March 1855 – 5 October 1926) was a Victorian neoclassicist painter, born in Wales. She studied painting under Edward Poynter at the Slade School of Fine Art and with Jean-Jacques Henner in Paris. In 1890, she married the African explorer Henry Morton Stanley, and became known as Lady Stanley. She edited her husband's autobiography, reportedly removing any references to other women in Stanley's life. After Stanley's death, she married Henry Jones Curtis (died Feb. 19, 1944), a pathologist, surgeon and writer, in 1907.
She was also an authoress and illustrated several books.
