After Daphne's death in 1991, Ian Kellam arranged for the

husband George specialised in anatomical drawing and was in demand for
illustrating medical textbooks. He also enjoyed painting landscapes and
portraits, and much of his leisure work can be

Michael Chambers offers reminiscence and illustrations of his
collection when it was put up for sale after his

became involved with Stanley he only ever painted her back view,
e.g The White Hart Dining Room
with Daphne seated, 1939.
