Scholarly Commentary


This drawing of DGR's wife has been known under the title “Lachesis”, obviously because of the sewing work in Elizabeth's hands. Marillier suggests that the title was associated with the drawing (DGR: An Illustrated Memorial, page 108). Since the actual work has not appeared, this assertion cannot be confirmed.
