Scholarly Commentary


Surtees comments: “In two compartments. In the left, Miss Siddal unaware of the all-seeing eye of Providence . . .is hiding one of her own drawings which she evidently does not wish Rossetti to see. In the right compartment, Rossetti surrounded by a litter of unpaid bills finds the drawing concealed behind the canvases stacked against a wall”.
