François Flameng (Paris 1912)

When E.T. Stotesbury and his new bride Eva were traveling in Europe in the spring and summer of 1912, they arranged to have both of their portraits painted by Flameng in Paris. Several years later they had Mr. Stotesbury's head re-painted, quite possibly by the artist Richard Langtry Partington.

Private Collection (the portrait of Eva Stotesbury, framed identically to that of her husband, is also in a private collection).

Julian Russell Story (Philadelphia 1906)

Story painted a portrait of E.T. Stotesbury for the Union League of Philadelphia. It is displayed there today in the Lincoln Hall.

George Burroughs Torrey (1907)

This portrait hangs in the upriver house of the Bachelors' Barge Club rowing club, of which E.T. Stotesbury was a member. The annual Stotesbury Cup Regatta, first sponsored by him in 1928, is the premier high school rowing regatta in the country.

Torrey portrait #2
George Burroughs Torrey (attributed)

This portrait was reportedly larger originally, but was cropped after damage sustained in a fire. Its resemblance to the Torrey portrait at the Bachelors' Barge Club suggests that Torrey was the artist, and it was painted at the same time as the Bachelors Barge Club portrait.
