Scholarly Commentary


The sitter is Georgina Robertson, who would later become Mrs. Fernandez (see DGR's 1874 portrait of her). She was the daughter of either Charles Robertson (1844-1891) or Henry Robert Robertson (1839-1921), both contemporary painters (see DGR's reference to Robertson in his letter of 30 July 1869 to Jane Morris, Fredeman, Correspondence, 69. 103 ).
