General Description

Date: 1874


◦ Surtees, A Catalogue Raisonné, vol. 1, 205 (no. 569).

Scholarly Commentary


The only version of this picture is the pastel drawing in the Fogg Museum, which identifies it as a portrait of WMR's wife. Surtees rejects the identification. The portrait seems to be a formal picture of Fanny Cornforth.
