Art on Sunday: Great Britons

I wanted to feature a work from Great Britons: Treasures from the National Portrait Gallery, London, an exhibition that opened recently at the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, and I found a couple of works I particularly liked, but I couldn't decide which one I should post. So I'm posting them both.

Hill & Saunders (active 1850 to 1900)
Queen Victoria and Karin Abdul, 1893
Carbon print
