Dante Gabriel Rossetti

General Description

Date: 1861 (circa)
Model: Fanny Cornforth

Scholarly Commentary


This drawing, unrecorded by Surtees, was a gift from WMR to Mr. A. B. Cobb, in whose house in Birchington DGR was staying when he died. As the slip accompanying the picture shows, it was given to Mr. Cobb in January 1883. Though marked as an “unidentified portrait of a woman”, the drawing seems clearly an early picture of Fanny Cornforth.
