Scholarly Commentary


Mrs. Morris seated on a plush love seat, virtually full length, body turned to the viewer but her head turned away, facing right; her left hand is drawn up beneath her chin at her throat, her right hand on the love seat as support. A second copy is in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
