Scholarly Commentary


This is a copy made in 1865, but cropped down from the original negative. Mrs. Morris stands outdoors, her back to the camera, her head turned to the right over her shoulder showing her profile. On the wicker chair to her left a shawl is draped. The only background is the garden vegetation, which is out of focus. A second print, uncropped and printed lighter, is identified in Museum records as a modern print.
