The New York Herald, November 26, 1905 stated that the Lotos Club was the recipient of this picture. It was painted posthumously from a photograph published in Speeches at the Lotos Club, 1901, edited by John Elderlin, Chester Lord and Horatio N. Fraser, opposite p.108. Muller-Ury was elected to lifetime membership of the club in 1902.
I am grateful to Nancy Johnson, Archivist at the Lotos Club, for this information.
