Portrait by Sarah Biffin 1784-1850 The Orrett Children / Children of Raph Orrett of Croxteth

Question

Hello
I am a retired school teacher who has researched my family history for some time but now has time to look at it in more detail. I am looking for a Miniture Portrait by Sarah Biffin 1784-1850 “The Orrett Children” painted sometime after she moved to Liverpool in 1840. I know it was in an exhibition in the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool sometime in the 1930s which was where it was seen by my husbands Aunt Flo. The Walker Art Gallery were under the impression it was in private ownership. I was wondering if anyone knew what it looked like or has a photograph of it. It might also be called “The Children of Ralph Orrett of Croxteth” it shows the picture of a boy and a girl. We are not sure who they are other than children of Ralph Flo couldn’t remember. He was a farmer in Corxteth. I would like to match names and faces if possible. Any information would be lovely. Thank you
