A London cousin of mine, about 5 times removed... was married to a brother
of a well known Royal Academician Painter by the name of Solomon J. SOLOMON
(1860-1927) s/o Joseph SOLOMON. This painter "invented" Camouflage during
WWI and painted members of the Royal family.
Then there was another London Jewish painter, Simeon SOLOMON (1840-1905) s/o
Michael (Meyer) SOLOMON, a well to do Leghorn-Hat maker who was married to
an artist, Catherine (Kate) LEVY. Not only Simeon's mother but his elder
siblings too were painters, Abraham Solomon (1824-1862) and Rebecca Solomon
Now, I wonder if anyone of you is familiar with the genealogy of these two
SOLOMON painters and is aware of any family connection between the two.
