Scholarly Commentary


Mrs. Morris outdoors, seated in wicker chair facing right, with her left hand crossed to grasp the right edge of the chair and her left resting on the edge. A shawl draped across the chair has moved and is out of focus. This is a modern print showing the original compositional structure of the photograph; the print made in 1865 is cropped and printed lighter.
